The blend has as its base a Sencha style green tea manufactured in Hunan Province in South Eastern China. Sencha green teas typically have dark green, needle shaped leaves and produce a pale green to yellow, very bright, smooth cup with a sweetish, honey like finish. The natural sweetness of this green tea makes it perfectly suited for blending with our dried Papaya pieces and natural passion fruit flavorings.
What constitutes a crime of passion? Lovers driven wild with lust? Deception? Being pushed by the heart to cross the line? This blend, inspired by a visit to the sultry hot beaches of Rio de Janeiro captures all of this and more. Brazil is a land of lovers. On the Copacabana beach in Rio, time seems to stand still as Brazilians recline in the heat of the equatorial sun.
Bring filtered or spring water to 170°F. Add 1 tsp of tea leaves to an 8oz cup. Pour boiling water over the tea leaves and let steep 2 minutes.
