10 bags Huon Green Tassie grown tea
From the world's most southern tea garden, at the top of the famous Huon Valley and in the foothills to Mount Wellington, nestled in a quiet valley where platypus peep out of a sun drenched water hole. That is where you will find us lovingly caring for our tea garden. Row upon row of neatly hedged plants with succulent growing tips waiting to be plucked and magically turned into scrumptious tea.
After plucking the young shoot tips they are quickly blanched to stop the natural plant enzymes from oxidising the tea, maintaining the green colour and stopping it from turning brown or black. This step is important for maintaining the health benefits of drinking green tea. The tea is then hand crushed and dried in our specially constructed green tea driers. The aroma and flavour of the freshly made tea is exquisite. The tea is smooth, low in astringency, with a sweet flavour making it delightful and easy to drink. A great way to stay healthy and alert and be productive for the entire day.
Unlike other tea growing regions, our pristine, isolated environment means that there are no pests and diseases and we do not need to apply pesticides. For the occasional aphid that appears we rely on our friendly ladybirds and small feathered friends to keep them under control. We are certified pesticide free and use solar power to pump our irrigation water and run our driers. This Tasmanian fair trade tea is ethically produced under all Australian standards and laws.
