The Artisanal Merapani Special Leaf is possibly the best looking and aromatic black handmade tea we offer at this time.
This tea was made by a young marginal farmer, who doesn't have any farmland of his own. He leases small plots of land from other marginal farmers (who find these lands too small to farm), and grows tea on these lands. He has however a gift for hand-rolling and baking teas, and within a short time has become one of the finest new tea makers in Assam!
Ingredients: Hand made Assam Black Tea
Serving: 1 person = 1 cup = 237 ml / 8 fl.oz.
Tea Leaf: 3.0 grams of tea
Water Temp: 205+ degree Fahrenheit / 96+ degree Celsius
Steeping Time: 3-5 minutes
If you let these leaves steep a very long time they still do not become too tanniny... So many Floral notes, tropical, and a nice robust yet subtle maltiness. So good. The size of the leaves are incredible. Give them room to open up and then strain if needed is my advice.
