Gui Fei Honey Tea is created through a remarkable combination of plant and nature. Farmers allow the edges of these leaves to be nibbled by leaf hoppers which causes the leaf to producing an enzyme that results in a finished tea that has developed a naturally sweet, beautiful rich, almost honey like quality.

A beautifully rich, multi-faceted tea which is definitely deserved of the time spent to enjoy it over multiple infusions.

 


  • Sweet rich warming chocolate, perfumed almonds and honey.
  • Our Organic Gui Fei once brewed produces a deeply smooth and delicious liquor that opens with hints of sweet bitter chocolate, honey and cassia bark. Over subsequent infusions subtler hints of flavours, such as perfumed almonds and crème caramel, develop.

  • Longer & Less - for a typical European style of brewing we recommend: 

    1tsp (3g) of loose leaf tea per person into a pot of around 95º water. (Allow freshly boiled water to stand for 30 seconds) Infuse for around 2 minutes. For subsequent infusions increase the time by 1 minute each round. 

    Can be infused 4 or 5 times this way. 

    Shorter & More - for a more traditional Asian (Gong Fu) style of brewing we recommend: 

    2tsp (5g) of loose leaf tea with around 150ml of 95º water. (Allow freshly boiled water to stand for 30 seconds) Infuse for around 40 seconds. For subsequent infusions increase the time by 10-15 seconds each round. 

    Can be infused 5 or 6 times this way.
