The making Process
Here we go again. Another amazing treasure from our garden. We've gently plucked each gigantic & juicy summery bud with one leaf, withered them, hand rolled them for about an hour in the garden while drinking our fantastic Jeju Island korean black tea & chatting like monkeys. Then slight oxidation took place in the darkest place of our house and quick bake! You think perhaps it maybe a lot of work for 20g of tea, but it's EPIC!
The drinking process
With a joy, excitement and drumroll, we present you "Kikori" - our tasty summer adaptation of Golden Pine Needle tea. With fragrance of sweet soft honey, currant and baked biscuits it creates the ultimate sweet & sour combo. The mouthfeel is very soft & round and quite well balanced. Floral notes tingle the tongue and hints of currant, butter biscuits & medjool dates brings a pleasure to your senses. The aftertaste is as short and sweet as my younger twin sisters are! :) It's just a JOY!
It's been hot, so hot one must hide in the shade from this scorching sun, dip in the lake or drink one of our absolutely gorgeous and refreshing "SALIDE DEL SOL" N.807. Salida is made up of Yerba Mate and Lemongrass. We added around 4 tbsp to 1L glass teapot and brew on 95 C, let it dance in the teapot for around 5 min and strain to a glass jug. Let it cool and refrigerate overnight. Voila... next day you have superb cold, boosting and refreshing drink:)

Keemun Hao Ya Palace gr.
Qimen or Keemun black tea is produced in Anhui province in China. It has been considered the best "red tea" (as Chinese often refer to black tea) for many years as it has rich aromatic cup with a delicate scent of roses and the sweetness of chocolate.
The magic happened when a retired high functionary introduced the red tea processing technique he had learned while working in Fujian in 1876. The sources say that this tea is a favourite at Buckingham Palace, but in all honestly, who knows what's true :P
You can buy & try in here....

Genmaicha & The Legend
It is said that on a fateful morning in 15th century Japan a group of samurai was meeting to discuss a war campaign. While a clumsy servant, called Genmai, was pouring the tea, some grains of rice accidentally slipped from his sleeve into his master's cup. Angry at the servant for ruining his tea, the samurai beheaded poor Genmai on the spot, only to sit back down, drink his tea and realise the roasted rice kernels actually added a nice flavour to his cup. Feeling remorseful and to commemorate his late servant, he named the tea "Genmaicha" and a legend was born.
Freakisly awesome sky.
Our Genmaicha taste like courgettes, toasted rice, bread and almonds :)
