Nantou Spring Tips Green Tea
This Nantou Spring Tips is a Spring Harvest 2012 green tea that comes from a 4,000 ft elevation (1,200 M) tea garden in the Aowanda National Forest area of Jenai Township in Nantou County, Central Taiwan. This green tea is made from a tea cultivar known as Jin Xuan, which is usually processed into a mildly fragrant oolong tea.
The Jin Xuan plants were planted in the mid-1980’s and have grown into very healthy & robust specimens. They have been grown using strictly natural agricultural methods. The careful, natural cultivation methods employed have enabled these plants to grow to very healthy and hearty plants which, in turn, produce tea with excellent body and a more robust character than their younger counterparts.
Appearance, Flavor & Aroma:
This Jin Xuan green tea was hand picked and processed in mid April, 2012. The tea was plucked primarily using a two leaves to one bud standard, and, although there was some inevitable breakage during production, packaging and shipping, it has been handled carefully to avoid too much damage to the finished product.
Wen infused, the flavor of this tea is light, fresh, sweet and a bit floral, and there is a slightly creamy or milky element in the flavor, which comes from the Jin Xuan source materials.
