Description

August 7th, 2018: This tea was unavailable for a while, but is now back on shelves! I don't know how long it will be available for, so please buy this tea while you can!

May 24th, 2018: Just tried one of these teabags in a cup with water at 95 Celsius. I left the teabag in the water for around eight minutes. It didn't get too bitter and there was a nice, sweet, fruity flavor to the tea that I couldn't elicit as well with cooler water and shorter infusions. 

Rickshaw (like Lipton) is a tea brand owned by Unilever. Rickshaw tea is sold in the Hong Kong and Singapore markets, and the brand has a long history in both cities, where many people grew up reaching for these teabags due to their convenience. When I posted pictures of these teabags on Facebook, a tea aficionado from Singapore remembered drinking the standard grade jasmine tea from Rickshaw in her youth!

These Maofeng green tea teabags are a higher quality, limited production run from Rickshaw, and at present, will only be on shelves for another six weeks or so. Please note I will only be able to offer this tea while it is in production. If and when these teabags are discontinued, I will no longer offer them for sale, and I will refund any buyers who purchase them right before they go out of stock.

These teabags are excellent for brewing on the move, when brewing loose leaf tea is too much effort or simply not possible (e.g, when traveling or in certain workplaces). I took these teabags to Thailand and they were definitely much better than the green tea teabags I was offered at breakfast at the hotel in Bangkok! While these teabags are of course nowhere near as good as fine loose leaf green tea, they do taste pleasant and have the calming, yet stimulating effect i drink green tea for, which indicates polyphenols like EGCG, ECG and EGC are present in the leaf.

These teabags are Rainforest Alliance Certified.

Brewing suggestion: 75-85 Celsius, with water of suitable hardness. Brew for 3-5 minutes in a teacup.

Wholesale discounts are available on this tea! Please contact me for details.
