 Golden Apple Spice

 "A bright crisp cup packed with the taste of luxurious ingredients,"

Warm cinnamon toast spice come to the fore with a delicious juicy apple mouth-feel.

 This tea is based on a Sencha style green tea from Hunan Province in South Eastern China. In Hunan, Sencha is manufactured according
to Japanese standards in which the freshly plucked leaves are steamed prior to processing.
 Chinese production of traditionally foreign tea grades:
In recent years, a select number of Chinese manufacturers have begun to produce exceptional examples of tea traditionally associated with other tea
 producing regions, most notably Japan, i.e. Sencha. While this may seem counter-intuitive, the practice is essentially the same as that of “New World” vineyards growing  traditionally “Old World” grape varieties. (Think of Cabernet Sauvignon, a French grape, attaining near-legendary status at the hands of Australian vintners.)
Hunan Province/China

The leaf is pan-fried - a process that gives the tea its distinctive glossy looks and then it's expertly blended and flavoured. Like all green teas,
Sencha is known to be exceptionally high in antioxidants and polyphenols. As such, recent scientific research appears to indicate that it may have an impact in the
 prevention of certain types of cancers.
We insist on using only natural flavouring oils, the high-quality tea tastes good and natural flavours do not overpower the great taste of the high-grade tea,

also natural flavours leave no aftertaste giving the tea a clean and true character. (The practice for some making flavoured tea is to use overpowering artificial 

 methods, which may be an indicator of a covered up lower quality tea).

 
 Natural flavours tend to be more delicate and subtle, most find this a refreshing change and is one of the desired qualities of our naturally flavoured teas.
When finished, Sencha is known for its dark green, needle shaped leaf and pale green, yellowish liquor.

 

This is a fantastic blend of Japanese-style Sencha having all natural ingredients and flavourings, with notes of
 grass and spicy apple, it makes a great introduction to Sencha.
