From Utopian Tea

This heavy tea comes directly from Fujian, China, and plucked from budding “big white tea” aka Dahao Tea. Plantations carefully pick the desired ‘one leaf with one bud’, each to undergo a spiraling process, thus giving this tea it’s distinctive name.

It’s body is spherical in shape, consisting of tightly wound granules (similar to that of Gunpowder tea). The spiral leaves are dark green in color, few covered with some down. Once steeped, this tea gives a rich and mellow aroma, heavy and thick in taste, and shows off it’s gold-green liquor. Some even say they notice a smoky layer embedded within the taste.

Experience this heavy green tea, perfect for big meals, and packed with deep, bold flavor. It’s a must try for anyone who appreciates earthy tones displayed in all aspects of their tea, as this is a very non-vegetal tasting green tea.

had to up the score on this tea. i really like it more and more as I drink it more times. It is so interesting, and today I really really picked up on that smoky layer of the tea in the scent. It smells like smoke, which is very intense smell. That smoky layer of the smell is in the flavor a little, but not as intensely as in the aroma. This isn’t a grassy green tea, so I would say it would be good for newbies getting into better tea types, as well as tea lovers who just crave a good cuppa. :)

Definitely can taste the smokey layer that is mentioned in the description. A very interesting flavor that does not taste very grassy. Definitely recommend!

No problem! I had an amazing cup off this tea the other day! It was so sweet that it boggled my mind! I have been trying to recreate it ever since! Any word on when you are going to get some pu-erh?

Stephen Wise

I too made a mysteriously better cup of this green spiral this morning. I hope I can recreate it soon. I steeped it for exactly 1 min, I believe. I’ve recieved a few samples of Pu-erhs last week. I plan on deciding on which I want to add to our selection soon, and hopefully have it available on Utopian Tea within a month.

This is a very unusual green tea, Utopian is right to give people a forewarning as i’ve never had anything quite like it. I would say the best way to describe the flavor of this tea is stone soup. It’s a rich earthy broth with strong mineral flavors to it. There’s a bit of smoke, but through a proper brewing temp (I recommend 165 as opposed to utopian’s 180), the flavor is mild and in balance (I don’t typically like smokey teas)

Personally, i find it really hearty and satisfying, b
