Peach Osmanthus

A well-balanced combination of Chinese Sencha, osmanthus petals and peach essences. It tastes like outdoors in the spring! The sweet flavours of peach and floral notes from osmanthus are exceptionally matched with the grassy, lightly vegetal taste of Sencha. Each ingredient perfectly balancing out the other. This tea has slight creaminess when served hot. It really shines when served as iced tea.

Green tea, White Tea, and Oolong Tea

Using boiling water to steep tea only works well for black teas and herbal ‘teas’. For green, white, and oolong teas, boiling water can burn the tea leaves and make the tea very bitter. Generally there is a range between 75C and 85C for green, white, and oolong teas (see our specific tea product pages for temperature guidelines), but of course most people do not have a thermometer ready to measure water temperature; instead, they will simply wait for the kettle to whistle, then pour water onto the leaves. Again, this is fine for black teas and herbal teas, but there are a few tricks you can use to make sure that your water is closer to the appropriate temperature for your tea.
