The Khan's Silk - Wild Green Tea Brick
Made for the camel trek from Xi'an, China to Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, this brick of green tea is a taste of history. Wild in its flavors, it tastes of the trees, the earth, the sand, and the air from the journey north. Easily broken with perforations on the back!
Comes in a 300g brick with 24 segments.
- Use 7g (≈1 perforated brick section) of leaf per ½ liter (≈17 oz) of water.
- Use 80°C/175°F water
- Steep for 2:00, strain leaves, and enjoy!
- Steep it multiple times! One brick section makes easily 4 cups. Steep the second one 1:30, the third 2:00, and the fourth 3:00. Feel free to add a minute for infusions past that, but they will be lighter!
- Like milk in your tea? Steep an extra minute!
- Too strong? Take off a minute, or use 5g of leaf instead!
- Too light? Kick it up another minute, or use 10g of leaf instead!
