For those partial to the sour power of kumquat, calamansi is a mild, yet wild citrus-hybrid native to the Philippines. Similar to sweet mandarin, the zest and tang of calamansi is perfectly paired with our organic white tea from China’s Fujian Province.

White tea (botanical name: Camellia Sinensis)
White tea is the least processed of all the tea families – white, green, oolong, and black. It is picked and dried over many hours either indoors or shaded outdoors. The tea leaves do not go through the same rigorous processing of the other tea families. It is handled very carefully during turning to ensure consistent drying and minimal intervention. White tea is a well regarded healthy drink in cold brews. Tea starts with the same plant and the different processing technique is the main contributor to the end resulting tea – white, green, oolong or black.
Calamansi belongs to the same family as Kumquat or Cumquat (botanical name: x Citrofortunella macrocarpa)
Also known as Calamondin or Philippine lime, it is native to the Philippines and found everywhere is Filipino cuisine. Though it is not lime, it is actually a cross between another species of citrus and the Kumquat. The flavour is like a sour orange or sweeter lime and a fragrance that is replicated to the nose. Though they ripen to orange, they’re usually picked while they are still green and the flesh is bright orange. Calamansi adds an intense fragrance twist to our East Forged range of non alcoholic drinks.
