THE STORY OF ENERGY
Energy. We need it, we burn through it. But what is it exactly? The word itself comes from the Greek energeia which means "activity" or "operation". While bodily energy is needed to accomplish all of our daily tasks, according to physiologists, the human body is notoriously bad at using it efficiently. No wonder so many of us feel so exhausted so often! Subsequently, even though we get our energy from the foods we consume daily, we often feel the need to supplement our energy sources. Typically, people will reach for a cup of coffee. (Unfortunately for many that also means the jitters - a frequent coffee induced side effect.)
To give you some options when looking for an energy-boosting beverage, Metropolitan Tea is pleased to present Energy, an invigorating blend of Green Mate, Lemongrass, Spearmint, Ginseng, Gingko and other vivacious, body enriching herbs. A full-bodied cup with herbal notes and fresh spearmint sweetness, this one is the perfect pick-me-up at any time of day. Feeling down, energy stores lagging? Reach for a cup and get ready for a boost!
BREWING INSTRUCTIONS FOR HOT TEA: Infuse one slightly heaping teaspoon for each 8 ounce cup with water brought to a rolling boil (85 degrees Celcius) for 3-7 minutes.
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.
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.
