Bella Coola. As improbable as it might sound, it was during a visit to a remote community in British Columbia that our Master Blender first conceived of the blend that would come to be named after this magical corner of the world. Our Master Taster had flown up to the community in a small sea-plane to take in some fishing during a stop over on his way home from an estate visit in Sri Lanka. It was the height of summer, mid July, when he found himself sitting on a wharf waiting for a fishing boat to come pick him up. It was a hot day so he went in to the local store, looking for something cool. His eyes fell on an orange popsicle, which he purchased and began to enjoy. The village children teased him good-naturedly. It suddenly dawned on him. 'This is the best popsicle I've ever had in my life!' The next thought he had involved the recipe for this tea blend - apple, orange, hibiscus and rosehip.

Upon returning home he determined to create the tea and name it after the place where he'd experienced the most perfect afternoon of his life, Bella Coola. The resulting herb and fruit tea achieved almost the same level of perfection. The cup was tart, sweet with notes of orange and pineapple lifting above an apple-y base. Create your own perfect moment by brewing a pot today. (Note: on the subject of popsicles, Bella Coola makes great ones. Simply make a pot of tea, pour into a popsicle mold, et voila!)



BREWING INSTRUCTIONS FOR HOT TEA: Infuse one slightly heaping teaspoon for each 8 ounce cup with water brought to a boil for 3-7 minutes.

ICED TEA BREWING METHOD (Pitcher): (To Make 1 Liter/Quart):
Infuse 6 slightly heaping teaspoons of tea with 1 1/4 cups of boiling water for 7 minutes.  Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water, and add the infused tea, straining the leaves, to the pitcher.  Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Add lemon 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.

ICED TEA BREWING METHOD (Individual Serving):
Infuse 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea with 6 ounces of boiling water for 7 minutes. Add the tea to a 12 ounce glass, filled with ice, straining the leaves.  Add hot tea to a 12oz/375ml acrylic glass filled with ice, straining the tea or removing the bags. Add lemon and sweeten to taste.

NUMBER OF CUPS: 15-20 cups from each 50 grams of tea, with a single use of the leaves.  Loose leaf tea is traditionally infused 3 times, with a different flavor profile following each infusion.  Accordingly, each 50 gram bag can make up to 60 cups of tea.
