From Tea Trekker

Fo Cha is the local name for the tea from Jiu Hua mountain, a magical place of dense woods, waterfalls, bamboo forests, and green tea that has a refreshing sweetness from the terroir of this rarified place. Jiu Hua mountain holds special memories for us: on our first tea buying trip to China we visited the Zhan Tian Buddhist Temple ( we had a vegetarian meal there and tea with the head monk). Later, we had a midnight tour of the bustling Fo Cha is the local name for the tea from Jiu Hua mountain, a magical place of dense woods, waterfalls, bamboo forests, and green tea that has a refreshing sweetness from the terroir of this rarified place. Jiu Hua mountain holds special memories for us: on our first tea buying trip to China we visited the Zhan Tian Buddhist Temple ( we had a vegetarian meal there and tea with the head monk). Later, we had a midnight tour of the bustling Jiuhua Mao Feng Factory ( yes, they work round the clock during prime harvest season ). It has been many years since we last had this lovely tea and we are thrilled to have it back once again. Fo Cha has all the qualities of a fresh, sweet eastern China spring green tea. The green teas from this part of Anhui Province are most delicious and lovely in appearance. They have light, long needle-shaped leaves that are covered with tiny white hairs, that deliver abundant sweetness and freshness in the cup.

Steep 2-3 infusions at 2 minutes each.
Water temperature should be 170° – 180° F.

Buddha’s Tea by Tea Trekker is a fantastic tea. It has beautiful long needle-like tea leaves that dance as you brew the leaves. The taste has a very refreshing, sweet taste, similar to what you might find in a dragonwell but with a slightly less nutty taste.

Did you just get that tea today teafreak? I am thinking about putting in an order on teatrekker very soon. Just cant go overboard with it or I will definitely be broke haha. Do you prefer green tea the most?

Teafreak

No I purchased a sample of it a couple months ago, but just haven’t logged it yet. I prefer green and white teas on a day to day basis, but nothing beats a great oolong.

I had a 2010 Before the Rain sample. The tea is similar to Adagio’s Anji Duet but lacking in flavor in comparison. It is mild, refreshing, not too grassy but feels watered down. Probably would not repurchase.
