Island Coconut Black Tea: Wonderful flavor releases tropical memories of secluded beaches with palm trees bending to the sea.

Curry. Pickles. Wine. French Toast. What do these foods have in common? Cinnamon. Coconuts. Who doesn't love them? The word coconut is thought to have been coined by Portuguese explorer Marco Polo. He thought that the 3 dark holes on their base made them look like a grinning face - in Portuguese "coco". Ironically, the coconut tree is considered by many people to be the tree of life. Practically every part of a coconut and the tree itself is useable and has always played an important role in the life of tropical people. What's so ironic about that you ask? Well, falling coconuts kill an average of 150 people worldwide every year! That's 15 times as many as sharks! Yikes. The danger comes from the fact that coconut trees can grow up to 100 feet in height. Luckily, this sweet and full-bodied tea is best served at table height which averages about 2 feet.

ICED TEA BREWING METHOD (Pitcher): (To Make 1 Liter/Quart):
Place 6 slightly heaping teaspoons of loose tea or 6 tea bags into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Using filtered or freshly drawn cold water, boil and pour 1¼ cups/315ml over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the tea or removing the tea bags. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to increase the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water. (Note: Some luxury quality teas may turn cloudy when poured over ice. This is a sign of luxury quality and nothing to worry about.)
ICED TEA BREWING METHOD (Individual Serving):
Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea or 1 tea bag into a teapot for each serving required. Using filtered or freshly drawn cold water, boil and pour 6-7oz/170-200ml per serving over the tea. Cover and let steep for 5 minutes. Add hot tea to a 12oz/375ml acrylic glass filled with ice, straining the tea or removing the bags. Not all of the tea will fit, allowing for approximately an additional ½ serving. Sweeten and/or add lemon to taste. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to increase the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted. (Note: Some luxury quality teas may turn cloudy when poured over ice. This is a sign of luxury quality and nothing to worry about!)

ANTIOXIDANT BENEFIT: For a greater antioxidant benefit brew longer and use more tea.

FOOD SAFETY ADVISORY: We strongly recommend using filtered or freshly drawn cold water brought to a rolling boil when brewing all types of tea. Today's water has been known to carry viruses, parasites and bacteria. Boiling the water will kill these elements and reduce the potential incidence of water-borne illnesses.
