Abundant in antioxidants, it has a bold and balanced green tea flavour, with subtle hints of smokiness, reminiscent of the pan firing process it undergoes in production.
This full leaf variety of green tea is organically grown in the Hunan province, of south central China. Often referred to by its common name Chunmee, we fairly source this tea directly from the growing cooperative in this region.
Place 1 pyramid into a cup (250ml) and add boiling, filtered water at 70ºc–80ºc. Allow to infuse for 2–3 minutes, and then remove the bag and serve.
The clear pouch that holds the tea bags is made from a renewable plant-based cellophane and can easily be home composted.
The cardboard is made from post-consumer recycled board, is printed with vegetable-based inks and can also be home composted after use.
The pyramid tea bags are not made from plastic. They are made from biodegradable, non-GMO, plant-based material which meets all compostability standards in Japan, North America and Europe. It is important to note these tea bags will take longer than plant matter to decompose. The material manufacturer recommends commercial composting as a quicker alternative to address this longer breakdown time.
A little bit more about Love Tea...
Love Tea was founded in Melbourne, Australia in 2006, by Naturopathy students Emma Watson and Damien Amos. Emma wanted to create beautiful products that were beneficial for customer’s health and promoted wellbeing. Damien was passionate about organics, working directly with growing communities and looking after our planet.
After experimenting with organic teas, aromatic spices and therapeutic herbs for a number of years, Emma and Damien decided to make their tea obsession a full-time project. By 2012, the range included more than 20 different blends, and the business name was changed from Love Chai to Love Tea, to reflect the wide range of products on offer.
Today, Love Tea is a small group of dedicated folk who share the passion of making the world a better place. We are continuously progressing, evolving, improving, learning, but most importantly enjoying the journey we are all on together.
"At Love Tea, we skilfully craft, blend and pack each of our products in Melbourne, Australia. We collaborate with growers and small scale cooperatives around the world to fairly source organic ingredients.
We thoughtfully design each of our unique products, to ensure optimum therapeutic benefit, exceptional flavour and minimal impact on the environment.
We hope our tea inspires you to make time to appreciate the quiet moments, take care of your health, and to share great tea with people you love."
