A beautiful thin wiry leaf produces a deep copper liquor with hints of raisin and citrus. This smooth well-balanced brew makes a lovely breakfast tea with moderate tannins and mild astringency.
This delightful organically grown tea is grown over 6000 ft above sea level in the Andes. The tea garden itself is located near the Bitaco Regional Forest Reserve, a protected rainforest. The rich volcanic soil in combination with the consistent climate near the equator produces a delicate and delicious tea throughout the year. Bitaco Tea was created by Agricola Himalaya Foundation to create educational programs for children, improve infrastructure, and increase access to technology.
Tea is highly personal and these instructions are only a starting point. Play with the parameters to find the perfect flavor for you.❦
