INFORMATION:

Lemons. All refrigerators have them. Most of us don't give them much thought. Not so Nobel Prize winning Chilean poet Pablo Neruda. In his poem "Ode to a Lemon", he describes the juice of the fruit,

Unrefined gold .
. the most intense liqueur
of nature, unique, vivid, concentrated

We couldn't have said it better ourselves. The juice of lemons is at once sour, piquant and as it was so eloquently put, intense. So what do you think we do when we encounter a fruit with a flavor profile as complex and powerful as that of the lemon? We blend it into a tea of course! These times we've taken the natural essence of sun kissed lemons and blend it with a pure South African Cederberg Rooibos. The result is a caffeine free delight. The cup presents lemons, exceptionally smooth Rooibos tones wonderfully offset by the tart citrus edge of the fruit. Were Pablo Neruda alive today there is no doubt he would have composed a poem about this tea. It may have gone something like this:

Wow, that's yummy stuff.
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).
