  • What constitutes a crime of passion? Lovers driven wild with lust? Deception? Being pushed by the heart to cross the line? This blend, inspired by a visit to the sultry hot beaches of Rio de Janeiro captures all of this and more. Brazil is a land of lovers. On the Copacabana beach in Rio, time seems to stand still as Brazilians recline in the heat of the equatorial sun. Strolling along one might notice sun worshippers and young couples feeding each other freshly cut pieces of papaya and passion fruit as they wallow in the sand. The sweet profiles of both fruits perfectly compliment the heat, humidity, and the goings on at the beach perfectly. We know it might sound cliché but that combination of heat, sand, water, and fresh fruit is so enticing; it should be a crime in itself. With this in mind we created this refreshingly sweet tea with a sinfully citrus punch you’ll want to enjoy again and again.

    The blend has as its base a Sencha style green tea manufactured in Hunan Province in South Eastern China. Interestingly, green and black teas can be produced from the same plants. Green tea is produced by forgoing the fermentation process required to produce black tea. Instead, the leaves are steamed as soon as they are plucked, and then bruised either by machine or by hand. The leaves are then pan-fried or basket fired - a process that gives the tea its distinctive glossy look and feel. Sencha green teas typically have dark green, needle shaped leaves and produce a pale green to yellow, very bright, smooth cup with a sweetish, honey like finish. The natural sweetness of this green tea makes it perfectly suited for blending with our dried Papaya pieces and natural passion fruit flavorings. You’ll notice that we’ve also added sunflower petals to the to enhance the visual qualities of the tea – when you’re selling loose tea, looks are important too! Brew a pot today and be transported to the sultry Copacabana. Incidentally, this is one tea that can’t be beat over ice!
