Our favourite green tea with a twist has two key components: green sencha tea from China and pieces of vanilla pod from Europe. The infusion creates a gentle but full-bodied drink that is mellow, smooth, and relaxing. The aromatic vanilla combined with freshness of green tea fills the palate and lifts the spirit.
To get the perfect brew of green tea is simple, though often missed; getting the temperature and time just right. Many people find green tea too astringent because they are brewing their drink at 100 degrees celsius. Green tea is very delicate and needs cooler water. Brewing green tea at 80 degrees brings out completely different flavours, yielding a sweeter and much smoother brew with the complex flavours not overpowered by tannins.
A great tea for beginners, the vanilla rounds out any puckery notes creating a smooth, aromatic and fresh drink.
