Tea: Lemon Cardamom Chun Mee
Type: Green Tea
Packaging: Loose Leaf
Description: I love the buttery Chinese sencha we use to create most of our flavored green teas with, but occasionally I like to try starting with different base teas. This week, we’ve blended Chun Mee green tea with organic green cardamom pods, lemon peel, lemon myrtle, lemongrass, lemon balm and lemon verbena for a delicious lemony citrus treat with a nice cardamom kick. The aroma of this blend alone is at once soothing and invigorating. As a beverage, it seems to walk that line brilliantly. It’s amazing hot or iced. Be sure to get yours today. Like all of our weekly teas, this is a limited edition.
