Orthodox teas from Africa are indeed rare as production is mostly C.T.C. teas. From the second main plucking period, this tea has striking golden brown leaf tips and a glossy orange colored cup with a strong flowery flavor. A must try.
Standard Hot Brew
Prep Steep Time: 4-5 min.
Temp: 203-212 F
Amount: 1 level tsp.
Serving: 6 to 10 oz. cup.
Remember, longer HOT steeping times will increase
tea strength and release more tannin. COLD brew steeping will
not have the same result. Initially, each tea requires a bit of testing
for your specific taste enjoyment. This applies mostly to Black, Green
and White Teas.
Cold Brew Prep
Prep Steep Time: 4-5 hours.
Temp: Normal cold refrigeration
Amount: 5 level tsp.
Serving: 1 Quart
Be sure to cover tightly to avoid steeping tea from absorbing other aromas in the refrigerator. Strain and enjoy the cold-brew tea that will last for days. Crushed ice and sweetener can be added if desired.
The leaf grade of this tea is (GFOP) Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe, which is a very high grade having a high proportion of tips.
