Yuzu Black Tea
$7.90 per oz.
1 oz. of loose leaf brews approx. 14 cups.
The Jasmine Pearl welcomes our first ever Japanese black tea, this one blended with yuzu rind. This Japanese black tea is naturally sweet and very smooth with a round mouthfeel and no astringency. In this blend, it is warmly complemented by the yuzu lemon-grapefruit citrus finish. Yuzu is a Japanese citrus lemon that is valued for its highly aromatic rind. Although this citron doesn’t contain much liquid, its zest and juice are used in perfumes, vinegars, syrups, and as a souring ingredient that stands up well to heat in cooking. Another iced pleasure!
Japanese black tea, yuzu rind.
Simply add to your infuser one heaping teaspoonful of leaf per 8 oz. of water and place it in your pot, then add the appropriate amount of 212° water and let it steep for 3 to 5 minutes. Remove the infuser and enjoy.
Our opinion is that a cooled concentrate works best, as regular-strength brew tends to become watery as the ice melts. So, use the above leaf quantities, but half the water, allow it to cool, then pour it over ice and enjoy! The brew will dilute down to proper strength as the ice melts.
