Stay cool with this refreshing, spa-inspired blend of cucumber and premium Chinese white tea. Vegetal aroma (think cucumber appetizers at a middle eastern restaurant), with a pleasantly dry, green melon finish. Excellent over ice, this unexpected pairing will leave you relaxed and centered; a lot more convenient than placing cucumber slices on your eyelids.
White Tea | Low caffeine | Steep at 180° for 3-5 minutes.
Cucumber were first cultivated in India 3,000 years ago. Ancient Romans also grew the vegetable widely; the Roman Emperor Tiberius was rumored to have eaten cucumbers every day. Cucumbers are usually consumed raw in salads or on their own, though popularity of the garden staple declined in the 17th Century due to fears of disease from raw vegetables. However, the cucumber has reclaimed its spot in the garden line-up, enjoyed raw, pickled, or cooked.
