Known as the 'King of Fruits', Durian is a prized, divinely custardy fruit with a polarizing aroma. Durian tea is crafted with a green tea base, allowing for the strength of the powerful aroma to fully shine through for better or worse.

About This Blend

Durian tea is hand crafted with an Organic Young Hyson green tea base, to allow for the strength of the natural Durian aroma to fully shine through - for better or worse. Savory, sweet, and creamy all at once, our Master Blenders bespoke blended this tea to capture the creamy custard taste of prized Durian at the peak of ripeness.
To truly appreciate this aromatic blend, please be mindful of the temperature of the water that you steep this tea in (stop the kettle just before boiling, 180*F), and that you watch the clock during the infusion so that it's an exact 1 minute steep!

Your FAQs, Answered
For Durian

Although both Chinese and Japanese Green Teas offer immune boosting and health-giving properties, they are inherently different in terms of their palate and character. Chinese Green Tea has slightly twisted tea leaves, typically presenting a light, clean and refreshing palate, while Japanese Green Teas have flat folded leaves that often omit a nori-like, vegetal palate.

Green tea is what we like to call a self-drinker. It should be served plain with no additions, to preserve the palate it presents.

When over steeped, and prepared at the incorrect temperature, green tea releases tannins that cause the tea to taste bitter. To avoid this bitterness, green teas should be steeped between 30 seconds and 1 minute at a temperature of 180° F or 82° C.

All tea, whether it be White, Green, Oolong or Black, comes from the same plant, the evergreen shrub Camellia Sinensis.
