Long Island has been famous for its strawberries for as long as people have inhabited the long spit of land. Local history books describe Long Islanders going on picnics and nature hikes to pick the wild berries as far back as the 1850's - and that's only recorded history. Archaeological records show that the Native Americans who inhabited the area centuries ago were also fond of the sweet summertime fruit. Commercial farming on Long Island began to develop rapidly after the Civil War. It certainly didn't hurt that the local farms were generally within a days drive of New York City. Among the new cash crops taken to market was the wild strawberry. As farmers began to haul their produce around the give boroughs, word quickly spread about the exceptional flavor of the Long Island treat. The strawberrys popularity grew quickly and as time wore on and car culture began to develop, roadside fruit stands popped up to cater to the city folk who began to partake in the new-found pleasure of the long country drive. To this day a journey out to Long Island will take you past many such roadside stalls and pick-your-own berry patches.
Weve taken the spectacular flavor of fresh, wild strawberries and blended it with a fantastic Sencha style green tea sourced from Hunan Province. The fine broad leaves of the tea hold our natural flavoring well and produce a cup that is light, fresh and tempered with notes of juicy strawberry. The best part? Its 100% organic! Brew yourself a pot today and dream of a summer cruise through the countryside. How does an organic tea farm operate? Organic Tea is tea that has been grown on gardens that have not been treated with synthetic fertilizers or pesticides for a minimum of 3 years. The process is multi-stepped. Environmental protection of lands surrounding the gardens including natural wildlife habitats. Minimizing pollution and optimizing biological productivity. Replenishment and maintenance of garden soil fertility. Production on machines that handle organic leaf exclusively.
