About Four Seasons Tea
The tea is harvested and processed by a father and son team in the traditional way. The tea processing equipment has been inherited from previous generations in this family.
Four Seasons refers to the tea cultivar (the tea tree strain). This is the most effective way of preserving the nature of the plant and flavor of the tea.
The Four Seasons Spring Black Tea is distinctive for two main reasons. First, it is organically grown — without the use of chemical fertilisers which tend to produce a more "artificially enhanced flavor" in the tea leaves. When tea plants are fed more natural food, and the soil is encouraged to be more "alive" with its micro-biology, the plants offer a more natural character in the flavor profile of the brewed tea. Secondly, the Four Seasons Spring cultivar is by nature exceptionally fragrant, with pronounced floral notes — particularly when it is processed as a "green Oolong". This innate character of flavor profile comes through in the Black Tea made from this strain as well. It is more complex, sweeter and has a more readily received flavor. In other words, you don't need to be a connoisseur to appreciate it!
Brewing a perfect cup:
A great cup of tea requires three elements: great tea, water and a tea master (you).
The right amount of tea is 1 teaspoon (2 to 3 grams) / 6 Fl. Oz. of water (185°F – 200°F).
Brew for 3 to 4 minutes.
Strain and add more water for a second infusion.
Water quality: filtered or spring water is recommended. Water containing high amounts of minerals or excess chlorine will make your tea tasteless.
