Black Tea "Broken Leaf" & Peppermint Gorreana 20 individual bags
Black Tea "Broken Leaf" & Peppermint. Package of 20 individual bags.
Black Tea "Broken Leaf" & Peppermint, produced in the island of São Miguel by Gorreana Tea Factory. Package of 20 individual bags.
This tea results from the combination of Gorreana's Broken Leaf black tea with peppermint produced by Santa Casa da Misericórdia da Maia under the solidarity project - Três Pontas. It is from this mixture that this product is born, peculiar and exotic as the island that produces it.
The result is a dark copper colored tea with a pronounced yet gentle aroma ideal to be enjoyed during the morning or as a five o'clock tea.
The tea factory Gorreana is the oldest tea factory in Europe (1883). It is located in the place of Gorreana on the island of São Miguel. Some scholars maintain that the "Camellia sinensis", plant that produces the green and black teas, was introduced in San Miguel in 1750, transported by ships returning from the East. The clay soil and its acidity allowed to obtain a fragrant tea and pleasant aftertaste. The tea produced in Gorreana is a green product, free from pesticides, herbicides and fungicides.
