Enjoy a wonderfully sweet treat with our Strawberry Papaya green tea. The Sencha style green from Hunan, China is a perfect match for the sweet flavor of strawberries and papaya. Green tea forgoes the oxidation process required to produce black tea. The leaf is steamed after plucking, then bruised either by machine or by hand. After that it’s pan or basket fired, leaving it with a distinctive glossy look and light sweetish flavor – an almost perfect match for fruity blends in terms of character profile.
Blended together, the combination of strawberry, papaya and green tea produces a cup that is light and fresh, tempered with delicate notes of exotic fruit. Brew yourself a pot today and dream of a relaxing cruise through the tropics. A fabulous tea!
