From Gong Fu Tea Shop

This fine green tea is from the Monkey Ditch region of Huan Shan in China’s Anhui province. The enormous, pressed tea leaves are picked in the early spring and produce a fresh, aromatic brew that is at once smoky and sweet. This rare tea find is deemed to be so special in its native country that the Chinese people declared it a National Treasure Tea in 1982

The dark green dried leaves have a waffle texture from being pressed with cloth during processing. This makes me happy every time I open the bag. It’s probably a strange thing to like about a tea, but a pretty tea is a great start.

I brewed this in my Chinese teacup with a porcelain strainer since the leaves are so large. What tea dust and little bits are in there also won’t make it bitter if they overbrew. The brewed tea has a lovely yellow green color. It’s smooth, mellow, and a little toasty. I miss the slight bitterness and strong flavor of Japanese greens, but this is good for a calm night of multiple steepings. I think this isn’t too caffeinated as well.
