Eye Bright - Spring Red Tea 2016 - 2 oz
With greater sweetness than most red teas, balanced by pleasant spices of nutmeg and clove, Eye Bright maintains a full flavor that fills the mouth. Substantial and light, this tea is gently invigorating and ideal for the morning.
Mi Xiang Red Tea from Taiwan is uncommon due to its unique method of production. Tea-green leaf hopper bugs nibble on the edges of the leaves in the Spring, which stimulates the plant's natural defense (phytochemicals). The nibbling of the leaves also stimulates the enzymatic activity of the leaf, which changes the flavor of the leaf and unexpectedly yields a distinctive floral, honey-like aroma and taste.
