Tea Story

Pulau Sibu, or Sibu Island, is actually a clustering of several smaller islands with exotic names like Sibu Besar, Sibu Tengah and Sibu Hujng. The islands, located about about 7 1/2 miles from Malaysia, pristine with postcard perfect beaches and lush vegetation surrounded by the crystal clear waterproof of the South China Sea. A visit to the island by our Master Taster many years ago was the inspiration for this blend. Decades ago the Master Taster fell in love with the place (and rumor has it, a local woman.) Heartbroken, he headed back to North America determined to honor the heavenly island. Well, he's finally done it with Sibu Cinnamon green tea, This fantastic green tea is blended with hot cinnamon to represent the fiery Sibu sun and the spicy character of his lost love. Rose petals have also been added in homage to the incredible diversity of flowering plants on the island. The base of this wonderfully smooth tea is a Sencha style green tea manufactured in Hunan Province South Eastern China. Sencha, a Japanese style green tea, is produced by skipping the fermentation process required for black tea. Interestingly, Both green and black teas can be produced from the same bushes. In green manufacture, the freshly plucked lease are steamed immediately and the bruised by machine or hand, Next the leaf is pan-fried or sometimes basket fired – processes that give the tea its disinvited glossy look and feel. The finished tea has a dark green, needle shaped leaf and produces a pale green yellowish liquor with a very bright up and sweet, honey like finish. If the sky treaters rain of the temperature begins to dip, brew a steaming pot and let the hot spicy cinnamon notes transport you to the warm beaches of Sibu.
