Seriously disappointing. This is one of my favorite styles of tea, but this tea was extremely fussy. It was almost impossible to steep it without it becoming very bitter. Even when i steeped it properly it was still nothing to write home about. It was so disappointing that i’ve considered that they may have sent me a different tea in this packaging by mistake. I really expected much more.
Green Cloud & Mist
Rare Lot # W
Grown on a small tea farm in the higher elevations of the mountains near Fuzhou, in Fujian Province, a tea maker and true “artisan of the leaf” processed the very aromatic and tasty Mei Zhan green-tea varietal in the traditional pan-fired Xan Bei Xiang style. His process creates green tea leaves in wonderful shades of deep-green to light-gray colors that cup to a clear liquor with complex, nuanced flavors and naturally sweet notes. This is a prized, slow growing varietal made with a leaf process that is “old school” and increasingly rare. His tea farm uses organic methods and his tea is delicious!
