Oranges were considered to be quite special. In Europe during colonial times leading right up into the early 20th century, the fruit was considered to be quite exotic and was prized by the wealthy and Noble throughout the Continent for its flavor and sweet scent. The deluxe and exotic qualities of the orange were perhaps better captured nowhere else than in the world famous perfume developed by the Parisian fashion house of Hermes.
This superbly flavored 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. It is this slight natural sweetness that allows this tea to blend so well with our natural orange flavorings. As an added touch we’ve also added tiny safflower petals to enhance the visual appeal of this blend.
Brew a pot today and be taken back to a time when the lowly orange demanded to be noticed! This one is also fabulous over ice.
