Description

This very unique, very early winter-spring (we believe that this tea is the very first green tea harvest of this year not only in all of China but the world!). This select Yunnan green tea was grown along the Liuluo River, in the south of China. It’s umami sweet flavor is delightful. It is the 1st flush picking ofthis year.

The firewood method was used to halt enzyme activity, to retain its brilliant green color and perfect oxidation, while adding a wonderful gentle smoked note. Once steeped, the highly aromatic leaf produces a lovely brilliant jade color liquor which is full, and umami taste. Enjoy!

This tea is really, really good. I smell and taste green olives, but my husband gets root beer. It's a fresh vibrant taste. I recommend a little lower temperature than is on the package (it recommends 190F for 3 mins, but I felt that brought out a little bit too much astringency, and I'd recommend 180/185F for 2.5 mins).

Beautiful color and taste. The overall taste of the tea is like eating a mix between a baked potato and mixed vegetables. It even smells savory, too.

I was pleasantly surprised by this tea. I use a scant handful of leaves in a tea kettle infuser. Umami flavor is there, pretty smooth and easy to drink.

I am using 1 gram of tea per 100ml of 202°F water. Pouring the water into an unwarmed teapot attains about 190°F after quickly equalizing. I use 5g with 500ml water inside an Adagio ingenuiTEA Teapot. The first brewing infusion is two minutes and I add on thirty seconds for each subsequent infusion.

The smell is light grass and umami with just a slight hint of smoke. Moderately smooth mouthfeel and the smells follow through in the flavor. Somewhat mild overall and no bitteness. Easy drinker that could be enjoyed all day.
