Nosso Chá is the result of the first harvest of green tea around April in continental Portugal. The tea plantation is situated in what is known as “the land of the camellias” on the coast of Northern Portugal and is the first of its kind in this location. Nina and Dirk use only organic, artisanal production methods inspired by Japanese techniques. This whole-leaf tea is good for multiple infusions (up to 4!). A wonderful addition of fresh, green aromas to the world of Chá Camélia green teas.
Tasting notes: Fresh green, natural sweetness with a whiff of the sea, some caffeine.
When stored dry and cool, the teas can easily be kept for 2-3 years without loss of taste or quality.
4-5g to 200ml of 80C water. Steep for 3 minutes. Up to 3-4 infusions are recommended. 3 minutes per infusion.
Since tea comes in all shapes and sizes, it is quite difficult to give you a measurement in tea- or tablespoons. So, if you are serious about tea or would like to be, we recommend investing in a little scale that is able to measure 0.1g. A fancy water boiler with temperature control is going to make your tea brewing set complete.
Some advice about the water used for brewing tea:
The quality of water is decisive for a good cup of tea! Tap water is rarely suitable, as it is often too hard and contains chlorine and too many minerals. It is advisable to use soft water, filtered or bottled in the preparations of tea.
