From Tea Trekker

~ Zhejiang Province, China
~ Pan-fired, hand rolled
~ Open-twisted, curled style
~ Sweet, fresh flavor
~ Lively, lingering aroma
~ Pale amber-colored liquor

This is a lovely, very well made country green tea that is modest in price but long on flavor. We were introduced to this tea at the Fang Cun tea market in Guangzhou and ordered it immediately. Sweet, refreshing and readily drinkable, this tea will no doubt become the everyday tea for many of our customers. This elegant tea is a mao jian pluck – the bud and one leaf, which makes for a very tasty cup with good clarity.

$15.00/4 oz

Dry leaves are cute, tiny, curly, dark moss green whiskers lol with the scent of minerals.
I brewed this in my kyusu.
The liquor smells like fresh cooked greens and is light spring green colored. The wet leaves are very dark spinach green. Scents of buttered beans and spinach.
The flavor is minerals and butter bean. This tastes just like my everyday green teas, I really cannot name the flavor that I call mineral. It is very unique and tastes like rocks smell because I have not been tasting rocks lol. I wish I could pin another tasting note on that mineral flavor. Green tea flavor, I suppose, because this is the only place I have every tasted that taste. Just an Earthy good tea :)
I like that I brewed this one at 170 F too.


I Steeped this 6 times total using my kyusu and it was great every time. It was probably able to steep another couple of times but I was full of green tea by that time :)
