  • Steeping Instructions

    1 teaspoon per 8 oz of water. Fluffy leaves like some Oolongs, use 2 teaspoons. For stronger tea use more tea.   There is no hard and fast rules on steeping except over steeping may make tea bitter.   If you are unsure, try cooler water and shorter steeping times. Below are general steeping instructions.  For best results, follow the steeping instructions that came with your tea.
    To estimate water temperature use a thermometer or wait a 2-3 minutes after the water stops boiling. Then the water temperature should be about 165- 185 F. You can gauge water temperature by looking at the bubbles forming at the bottom of the tea kettle.  When pin size bubbles form, the water temperature is about 185F. To take the guess work out of water temperatures, try our electric tea kettle.

A light refreshing cup of loose tea

One of the oldest and most oft-traded blends of loose tea, 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 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 loose tea lovers have chased since their first taste of plain black.

Sourced from China, this loose leaf tea offers the country's knack for providing teas 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 loose 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 loose tea lover searching for a balanced-yet-sweet green.

Try it as an Iced Tea

Citron Green makes a great iced tea that is thirst quenching and all so satisfying. A classic iced tea, for most Americans is black tea with or without sugar and a twist of lemon. Iced green tea is trending and becoming incredibly popular.  With the lemon already infused in, Citron Green is a great choice and its great taste eliminates the need for sugar. Use our Easy to use Iced Tea Pitcher to keep some on hand in the fridge all summer.

This is a tea that is not grassy.  Great for sharing with friends.  Keep plenty on hand. Order some now.

The brightest green tea!

I drink more tea than most sane humans. Citron Green and Cream of Earl Grey are my favorites because both are smooth and pack a bright citrus punch.

Well, Ashley, we would be the last to call you anything but completely sane! You have discovered some Good Life Tea favorites and hope they remain your favorites for a long, long time to come.
Citron Green

I can't start my day without a cup of this tea. Blends well with all the fruit teas I've tried.

We appreciate your comments, Katelyn. Have you tried Citron Green iced? It's awesome as well.
Helps me sleep!

I drink this tea before I go to bed and it takes me right to Dreamland. I recommend it highly!

Thanks, Fred for your recommendation. We totally agree!
Iced goodness!

This is super refreshing when sipped over ice on a hot day! Love the hint of citrus, but it still had a lot of the earthy green tea taste.

Thanks for letting us know. We couldn't agree more!
