Trip to the Tropics
Trip to the Tropics is a mellow, fruity tea with papaya, aroma of mango, vanilla, marigold and rose petals that makes you think you are on vacation in the tropics. (And maybe you are!!) This tea can be sipped at breakfast time while watching the sun slowly rise out of the ocean as well as at a drowsy high tea on the edge of the beach with the birds murmuring in the trees. It tastes as good with milk in it as without and can easily be made into a spectacular ice tea.
3.75 oz package. Makes 50 - 70 cups tea. Shipping is FREE.
Steeping guidelines: Use only fresh cold water. Use 1 tsp tea/cup + 1 for the pot. If using a clam-shell infuser barely fill one of the halves. Bring water to 160 F. Steep time 2-3 minutes. Is is a good idea to use a"reverse steep" with green tea ingredients to get the most out of its delicate flavor. Reverse steep means to add the tea to the water rather than pour the water over the tea. This way the tea leaves warm up more slowly which protects its delicate flavor. If tea is too strong or too weak adjust the steeping time, not the amount.
