High Mountain Green
The tea plants are grown high in the mountains in Fujian, China. For two hundred days a year the plants are shrouded in mountain mist. The tea leaves can be steeped hot or cold, producing a rich green tea flavor with smooth after taste.
A teaspoon of these full leaves blooms in hot water and makes a beautiful green brew with an aroma of toasted vegetables and a slight floral perfume. The drink is both toasty and tasty, with just a little hint of flower and some tannin on the finish. It’s a bit like sipping a bag of those vegetable chips you can’t put down. This is also an excellent tea with food. I was surprised at how this tea complemented a salad with tortellini with sun dried tomatoes–almost like a good Chianti. Extremely versatile, and a bargain to boot.
