One of the oldest and most oft-traded blends, Citron Green is considered a simple, elegant tea – valued as much for its intrinsic qualities as it is for its blendability. But there's a perfect blend for every base. For green tea lovers, we're sure that this Crisp Citron Green will prove a strong candidate. Clean, lemon-y and sweet; it gets right to the heart of citrus: that same pleasant sweet astringency that tea lovers have chased since their first taste of plain black.
Sourced from China, it offers the country's knack for providing tisanals that are both made with incredible seriousness and appreciate a playful note or two. And thus we have a green as formally precise in its astringency and clarity as it is bright and citric. Forgoing the warmer orange or gardenial hints, Citron Green trusts the blend of lemon and green tea.
The result? Intoxicating. Leafy and light, it's a tea that can be enjoyed cold or hot, at any time of the year. Relaxing and perfect before a nap or bed, it's balance of weight and flavor (both subdued) appeals to the unfussy tea lover searching for a balanced-yet-sweet green.
This is a green tea that is not grassy.
