Green tea is mature tea that has been picked and then pan fired [or steamed] to stop the oxidation process. Because of the very limited oxidation, green tea produces subtle sweetness that offers a bouquet ranging from grassy to floral.
TTR Trivia : This Red Phoenix blooming flower tea has been a part of The Tea Republic’s offerings in Malaysia since 2010. A much-loved favourite of our regular customers.
If you enjoy classic flavour combinations then you can’t go wrong with this elegant blooming tea. Place a tea ball into freshly boiled water and watch as a beautiful globe amaranth flower rises upon a string of jasmine buds, presenting itself among Chinese green tea leaves and refreshing notes of peppermint.
We recommend brewing this green tea in a glass teapot to see the blossom in all its glory. Suitable for a 600ml brew.
Each canister contains 8 tea balls.
Brewing time : 3 -10 minutes
Infusions : 2-3 rounds
( It is best to drink the infusion after 3 minutes, then refill your pot and watch the tea bloom further to avoid an over-brewed infusion. The whole blooming process can take up to 20 minutes. Sip away on your tea and enjoy watching the blooming tea bouquet. )
