From France Provence.

Common belief maintains that nothing is made to last. Well, when Mother Nature in her infinite wisdom created the Ginkgo Tree, she wasn’t worried about common belief. For evidence, let’s travel to 1945 Hiroshima, Japan. After the explosion of the atom bomb, nearly all living things in the area were killed. All, that is, but six Gingko trees growing within a couple of kilometres of the blast zone. Those six trees, all of which thrive to this day, thoroughly charred by the blast, managed to survive and shortly afterward began to produce new shoots. A miracle of botany.

In addition to its ability to heal itself, Ginkgo is prized by herbalists and traditional medicine practitioners as a great way to heal the body. Consuming ginkgo products is said to help blood circulation, improve sight and hearing, even assist with cognitive functions in the brain, leading some to believe it may slow Alzheimer’s.
For a tree with such an impressive resume, it isn’t too surprising to learn that the leaves of the tree also produce an easy-going, thoroughly enjoyable tisane. We’ve sourced these luxury ginkgo leaves from one of the world’s premier suppliers, located in France. When brewed, it produces a lightish cup with a delicate floral fragrance and a smooth, long finish. A classic example of one of the world’s most tenacious plants. A votre santé.

IDEAL BREWING TEMPERATURE: 100ºC/212ºF

HOT BREWING METHOD:
Bring filtered or freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea for each 7-9oz / 200-260ml of fluid volume in the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea).

ICED TEA BREWING METHOD (Pitcher): (To Make 1 Liter/Quart):
Place 6 slightly heaping teaspoons or 6 tea bags into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Using filtered or freshly drawn cold water, boil and pour 1¼ cups/315ml into the pot. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the leaves or removing the tea bags. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to increase the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted
with cold water. (Note: Some luxury quality teas may turn cloudy when poured over ice. This is a sign of luxury quality and nothing to worry about.)

ICED TEA BREWING METHOD (Individual Serving):
Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon or 1 tea bag into a teapot for each serving required. Using filtered or freshly drawn cold water, boil and pour 6-7oz/170-200ml per serving into the pot. Cover and let steep for 5 minutes. Add hot tea to a 12oz/375ml acrylic glass filled with ice, straining the leaves or removing the tea bags. Not all of the tea will fit, allowing for approximately an additional ½ serving. Sweeten and/or add lemon to taste. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to increase the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted. (Note: Some luxury quality teas may turn cloudy when poured over ice. This is a sign of luxury quality and nothing to worry about!)
