   This is a versatile tea that can be infused for variable lengths of time, ranging from 3 to 6 minutes. At briefer steepings, the liquor is sweeter and more delicate. Longer steepings yield a more robust cup, which many will prefer when paired with a rich dessert. With notes of green apple and hints of sweet pipe tobacco, this unique tea is a great addition to our line of African tea offerings.

Steeping Suggestions: -
Leaf Quantity: 2 g/cup
Water Temp: 212 (boiling)
Steep Time: 3-6 min.

"This is a superb tea that I drink on its own. The leaves have a very unique, wiry look and an even more unique smell, which carries through to the liquor, which is a strange combination of extremely subtle and deep, almost tangy flavors. This is a must for tea drinkers to at least try, especially those who like something a little different or who enjoy estate teas from Ceylon."
