Crime of Passion Green Tea


Crime of Passion Green Tea brings memories of the Copacabana Beach in Rio. This loose leaf tea has papaya pieces, sunflower petals and criminally exotic passion fruit notes infuse superior green tea. Thus the name "Crime of Passion" because of the passionfruit flavors in this amazing loose leaf green tea. What constitutes a crime of passion? Lovers driven wild with lust? Deception? Being pushed by the heart to cross the line? This blend, inspired by a visit to the sultry hot beaches of Rio de Janeiro captures all of this and more. Brazil is a land of lovers. Strolling along one might notice sun worshippers and young couples feeding each other freshly cut pieces of papaya and passion fruit as they wallow in the sand. The sweet profiles of both fruits
perfectly compliment the heat, humidity, and going on at the beach perfectly. We know it might sound cliché but that combination of heat, sand, water and fresh fruit is so enticing; that it should be a crime in itself. With this in mind, we created this refreshingly sweet tea with a sinfully citrus punch you'll want to enjoy again and again. The blend has as its base a Sencha-style green tea manufactured in Hunan Province in South Eastern China. Interestingly, green and black teas can be produced from the same plants. Green tea is produced by forgoing the fermentation
process required to produce black tea. Instead, the leaves are steamed as soon as they are plucked, then bruised by machine or by hand. The leaves are then pan-fried or basket-fired - a process that gives the tea its distinctive glossy look and feel. Sencha green teas typically have dark green, needle-shaped leaves and produce a pale green to yellow, very bright, smooth cup with a sweetish, honey-like finish. The natural sweetness of this green tea makes it perfectly
suited for blending with dried Papaya and natural passion fruit flavorings. You'll notice that we've also added sunflower petals to enhance the visual qualities of the tea.
Be transported to the sultry Copacabana. This is one tea that can't be beaten over ice!
