INFORMATION:
Have you ever heard of a Lemon Battery? Lemon Battery is the term given to a lemon that has become the subject of a school age science experiment in which electrodes are attached to the fruit and then plugged into a light bulb or small engine. The high acid content of the fruit actually generates enough electricity to power whatever it is that has been plugged in. It's hard to believe but it's true.

Well, we believe that what we've created by blending the all-natural flavor of lemon with the full-bodied and decidedly brisk character of pekoe gunpowder should henceforth be known as a Lemon Tea Battery. Here's our rationale. Pekoe Gunpowder is one of the stronger flavored green teas on the market and takes your taste buds on a journey of smoky depths with each sip. Its strength and flavor comes from the way it is rolled during production. The labor-intensive process includes hand rolling each individual leaf in order to force flavorful liquids from the centre of the leaf to the surface Firing seals the leaf in this rolled state and keeps the flavor and power contained. (Small. Round. Contained power. Hmm, starting to sound a lot like a battery!)

Add to this the lively character of fresh lemons. Although lemons are generally known for their soothing qualities, as the school experiment illustrates, they also pack some power. Just think of the way your lips pucker automatically if you suck on a pure lemon.

So there you have it, The Lemon Tea Battery. Pekoe Gunpowder and Lemon - a magical combination. Just try and drink a cup before heading off to bed.

IDEAL BREWING TEMPERATURE: 85ºC/185ºF. For Food Safety reasons bring water to 100ºC/212ºF and let it cool down to 85ºC/185ºF.

HOT BREWING METHOD:
Bring filtered or freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea for each 7-9oz / 200-260ml of fluid volume in the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea).

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. 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!)
