GRADE(S): OP (Orange Pekoe)
These two flavors were probably combined sometime roughly 1000 years ago. And why not combine them? The tart tanginess of lemon is as perfectly balanced by the heat and flavor of ginger as day is by night. (Speaking of literary references, that last metaphor ain't bad, we'll have to remember that one.) Brew a pot of this tea and sample the wonderful flavor mélange, a true taste of history!
HOT BREWING METHOD: Bring filtered or freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea for each 7-9oz / 200-260ml of fluid volume in the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea).
