Origin: Organic, fair trade Yunnan black tea blended with organic lemongrass in the U.S.
Flavor Profile: The clean taste of lemongrass, lemon zest and lemon balm are reminiscent of a lemon-juice-spiked Yunnan black, but clearer, mellower and less puckery. A slight crème fraiche tartness rounds out the taste of this revitalizing tea.
Tea Story: This organic tea is a blend of chocolaty, earthy, fair trade Yunnan black tea and vibrant lemongrass. The enticing tang of Meyer lemon and Key lime pie insinuates the sweet-tart nature of this tea, but does not prepare you for its beautifully lingering lemongrass-tannin character. This rousing blend is delightful hot and crisply refreshing iced.
Samovarian Poetry: Organic, fair trade black tea, organic lemongrass. Clean taste, clean tea.
Food Pairings: Lemon Yunnan Black pairs well with grilled lemon salmon, roasted lamb couscous, duck or tofu jook, coconut-rice pudding, butter cookies, pot au chocolat with whipped cream or fresh raspberry tartlets. When blended with hot chilies and lime juice, it makes an amazing marinade for grilled chicken or tofu.
