Here is a very unique green tea that will cater to fans of raw (sheng) pu’er tea. The Radella Ceylon Young Hyson Green Tea consists of mature tea leaves from the TRI 2023 cultivar. The mature leaves provide the infusion with earthy, mineral, and marine aromas and tastes that are as refreshing as they are unusual. The mineral and marine notes combine to create a sea mist quality. You will be amazed by the size of the leaves once they have fully expanded. I have measured leaves that are over four inches (100 mm) in length, and nearly two inches (50 mm) wide.
The leaves can be reused at least five times, with each infusion having slightly different profiles of aroma and taste. The tea has an interesting and noticeable energy that calls you to nature. Seriously, as weird as it sounds, when I drink this tea, I want to be sitting on the forest floor next to a mountain stream.
I decided to import this tea and offer it through The Tea Journeyman Shop not because I felt it would become a widespread favorite among casual tea drinkers, but instead to offer experienced enthusiasts an opportunity to try something truly different from anything else I have found on the market. I cannot wait to start getting some feedback on this tea from other enthusiasts, because I personally love it. Cheers!
