Organic tea is produced without the input of chemical fertilizers or pesticides and herbicides. Unfortunately the yield per acre is lower and quite often quality can suffer compared to when fertilizers and others inputs are utilized. Nevertheless with good manufacturing techniques the cup characteristics can be maintained at a very high level - such is the case with this tea. This tea is a top quality Green Tea (Peacock #1 showy, beauty, importance, good luck) with good green tea taste properties - slightly vegetative and fruity, but refreshing and clean.
This superior quality Peacock #1 tea is exceptionally well graded. It is said that if you look closely at the infused leaf you will see the fan of the peacock's tail feathers. This tea has a delightful fruity-like character, which is on account of the plucking and time of year it is grown. The finest crop is plucked in the early season (March/April), before the May rains have swelled the tender leaves and the sun noonday sun stresses the tea bush to the point where it affects the flavor. This tea is plucked in the early season as the sun is just beginning to rise above the horizon.
