Description

Fo Cha is the local name for the tea from Jiu Hua mountain, a magical place of dense woods, waterfalls, bamboo forests, and green tea that has a refreshing sweetness from the terroir of this rarified place.

Later, we had a midnight tour of the bustling Fo Cha is the local name for the tea from Jiu Hua mountain, a magical place of dense woods, waterfalls, bamboo forests, and green tea that has a refreshing sweetness from the terroir of this rarified place. Jiu Hua mountain holds special memories for us: on our first tea buying trip to China we visited the Zhan Tian Buddhist Temple ( we had a vegetarian meal there and tea with the head monk). Later, we had a midnight tour of the bustling Jiuhua Mao Feng Factory ( yes, they work round the clock during prime harvest season ). It has been many years since we last had this lovely tea and we are thrilled to have it back once again. Fo Cha has all the qualities of a fresh, sweet eastern China spring green tea. The green teas from this part of Anhui Province are most delicious and lovely in appearance. They have light, long needle-shaped leaves that are covered with tiny white hairs, that deliver abundant sweetness and freshness in the cup.

Steep 2-3 infusions at 2 minutes each.
Water temperature should be 170° – 180° F.
