From The Tea Table

From Shanghai, China, the perfect green tea. This is a top quality green tea: ‘Pearl River’ signifies very important, master quality, cleanliness and good health. With an even, curly leaf, this tea is hand-sorted to select only the leaves that can curl in this manner. Further, the plucking only takes place in the pre-dawn, when the leaf is covered with a misty dew, which improves the taste and imparts a fullness to the tea character. The liquor has good body and depth without being too earthy. Nice green color and a clean taste. Use one heaping teaspoon per cup and steep 3 minutes in steaming water.

This is the first green tea which I’ve tried from my tea of the month subscription to Tea Table. The label on my packet claims that this is “the perfect basic green tea” and, while I’m not sure that it’s perfect, it is a very nice basic tea. It’s surprisingly smooth for a green tea, even in the dregs when the taste becomes slightly bitter, and until those dregs the taste is very light and pleasing.

The company’s webpage for this tea drops the “basic” from the description and makes this sound like a far more complicated tea than I experienced. Don’t let that put you off.
