Description: Lime Keys Green Tea blend is a delicious blend of Sencha-style green tea with natural raw lime pieces. Sencha, a Japanese style green tea, is produced by skipping the fermentation process required to produce black tea. In green manufacture, the freshly plucked leaves are steamed or heated (to kill the enzymes that cause fermentation) immediately and then bruised either by machine or hand. Next, the leaf is pan-fried or basket fired - a process that gives the tea its distinctive glossy looks and feels.
Sencha typically has dark green, needle shaped leaves and produce a pale green to yellow, very bright and smooth cup with a sweetish, honey like finish. With its mellow grassy undertones and refreshing lime, this is one of our most refreshing green tea blends. Stunning iced.
