Agreed, really great green tea. It has a very fine aftertaste. I was trying to compare this tea to Tao of Tea’s Rainforest green – I noticed a difference in the aftertaste, the Jade Bamboo takes on a stronger sense of sencha, and the rainforest green becomes less bitter. Otherwise, they are really similar and both great. I like the Rainforest slightly better.
Made in the Hunnan Province, China.
Made in early spring with true artisan skill of pan-roasting leaves, the Jade Bamboo is grown at an elevation of 1000 meters. The traditional art of pan roasting over low heat helps develop the flavor fully and gives it a good balance toasted aroma. We find it similar to the aroma of bamboo. Sweet, smooth, vegetal taste. Brew at 175F for four minutes, mineral water preferred.
