Kenyan Orthodox Green Tea is grown on the highlands on rich volcanic soil in the Central Province Disctrict of Kirinyaga and is the optimum moderate climate for Tea. A palate pleaser, these green orthodox leaves brew a delicate green cup and taste so fresh you will feel you picked the lead from the garden. Kenyan Orthodox Green Tea can be brewed more than once for a lighter taste.

Preparation & Serving:
Hot: Place half teaspoon Orthodox tea leave in a tea infuser. Pour water just off the boil. Let this brew for 2-3 minutes and enjoy. You can enjoy the second brew and subsequent brews by adding some more fresh hot water in the pot. When brewing tea the second time, 1/3 brewing time is adequate because water has already penetrated into the leaves. (You can get up to 6 cups from half a teaspoon)
Iced Green Tea: Place 1 teaspoon of Green Orthodox tea leaves in a glass teapot and pour hot water (just off the boil) until the water covers the leaves. Add ice cubes to the pot. Pour 5/8 cup of cold water into the pot. Leave this to cool for a few minutes and voila you’ve got Iced Chai!
