#715 “Twig Tea,” a specialty of the early spring, is made by meticulously processing the leaf and stalk cuttings from sencha production. Lightly creamy and nutty, this treat brews up a bright yellow-green, but does not have the vegetal boldness of its sencha cousin. Low in caffeine and delicious on ice.
Preparation: 3 g tea leaves (1 heaping teaspoon) per 8 oz cup of filtered water, boiled and cooled to 70°C/158°F. Allow to brew 2 min.
