Assolo, Italian green tea

The Italian Tea

Loose leaf green tea

Loose leaf tea in 20 grams bag

A unique tea, a true music solo made from the buds and the first two tender leaves. Exclusive to La Via del Tè, it is hand-picked in spring in the tea garden of Premosello, near Lake Maggiore. Smooth, vegetal and fruity at the same time, it reflects the refinement of its origin. It is the result of the alchemy between the variety of the plant, nourished by the alpine water, the terroir and the talent of the growers and the tea makers. A handcrafted tea, solely picked by hand, selecting buds and leaves one by one. A limited production, a tea like no other.

Green tea (Italy)

This amazing spring green tea is grown in Val d'Ossola, near the Lake Maggiore,in the Premosello tea garden, the second largest plantation in Europe after the Azzorre and the first one in Italy able to guarantee an appreciable and stable tea production. At Premosello no chemicals are used, neither to fertilise nor to protect the plants from pests or diseases; weeding is still done by hand and using the straw mulching technique. From harvesting, traditionally done by hand with selection of only the apical buds and the first two tender leaves underneath, to the still artisanal processing, all comes down to the skill and sensitivity to produce a completely natural tea with perfectly defined characteristics of body, fragrance, aroma and flavour.

Goes well with delicate food, steamed fish, fresh creamy cheese, milk dessert.
