From Yunnan Sourcing

Zhenyuan, a high altitude area of Simao, produces this high quality delicate green tea. Picked twice a year in a 2 day period when the buds and leafs are young and small. The taste is light and fruity with slight nuttiness. An exquisite tea, fresh for spring season.

No pesticides or artificial fertilizers used. Grown by a small family-run operation!

This has become one of my prefered green teas. 5 g. per 10 cl gaiwan, 75 C water, start with 15 second, and increase slowly to 30-40 seconds. One can step the tea up to 8-10 times, and possibly more. Restepping later with lukewarm water it has become very sweet.

Substantially, a kind of mao feng, but with a bitterness note leaning towards raw puer, that can become a bit overwhelming with warmer water or longer stepping times. And developing nicely with many infusions, like the best maocha. My first attempts at 80-85 C were too bitter, I found my perfect balance experimenting lower temperatures and shorter times.

I am curious how this would evolve with time.
