FROM THE FOUNDER
My original intention with this tea was to create a fruity green tea, the richly sweet crowd-pleasing type that kids could drink and think it was hot cordial, however the end result quickly became something far more subtle, elegant and unexpected.
While experimenting with the ingredients, the first thing that struck me was the colour, this gorgeous sunset pink, the kind you'd love to dress your flower-girl in on your wedding day, and although it was edging on midnight, I couldn't help but let out an audible gasp of delight and a conclusive moment of satisfaction. If nothing else, the colour was delightful - thankfully, on tasting this new concoction, I was intrigued by the lightness and the way the green tea seemed to humbly take back stage to some of the other sweet, briefly tart floral flavours.
The third brew was what really caught my attention - a bright, tart explosion filled my mouth as I realised it had taken until then for the inherent flavours of the schisandra berries to finally fully reveal themselves - never discard this brew prematurely, you'll miss out on the best bit!
