Ingredients: Green tea, Calendula, Lime pieces, Natural flavours

Hot tea brewing method: When preparing by the cup, this tea can be used repeatedly – about 2 times. The secret is to use water that is about 85-90°C. Place 1 teaspoon in your cup, let the tea steep for about 3-5 minutes and then begin enjoying a cup of enchantment – do not remove the leaves from the cup. Once the water level is low – add more water, and so on and so on – until the flavor of the tea is exhausted. Look at the pattern of the leaves, they foretell your fortune.

Iced tea-brewing method: (to make 1 liter/quart): Place 6 teaspoons of tea into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the leaves. Add ice and top up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. [A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water.]

Have you ever heard of a Lemon Battery? Lemon Battery is the term given to a lemon that has become the subject of a school age science experiment in which electrodes are attached to the fruit and then plugged into a light bulb or small engine. The high acid content of the fruit actually generates enough electricity to power whatever it is that has been plugged in. It’s hard to believe but it’s true. Well, we believe that what we’ve created by blending the all-natural flavor of lemon with the full-bodied and decidedly brisk character of pekoe gunpowder should henceforth be known as a Lemon Tea Battery. Here’s our rationale. Pekoe Gunpowder is one of the stronger flavored green teas on the market and takes your taste buds on a journey of smoky depths with each sip. Its strength and flavor comes from the way it is rolled during production.

The labor-intensive process includes hand rolling each individual leaf in order to force flavorful liquids from the centre of the leaf to the surface. Firing seals the leaf in this rolled state and keeps the flavor and power contained. (Small. Round. Contained power. Hmm, starting to sound a lot like a battery!) Add to this the lively character of fresh lemons. Although lemons are generally known for their soothing qualities, as the school experiment illustrates, they also pack some power. Just think of the way your lips pucker automatically if you suck on a pure lemon. So there you have it, The Lemon Tea Battery. Pekoe Gunpowder and Lemon – a magical combination. Just try and drink a cup before heading off to bed.
