Verdant Reserve Club – August

After accidentally stumbling into a back-alley teahouse on a rainy night in Hangzhou, I met the family behind this tea. Jingshan is totally off the radar in terms of famous green tea growing regions, despite being much more prized and famous in the early days of tea.

In thinking about green teas, I consider Jingshan and it’s Yunnan flavors to perfectly span the middle of the spectrum from the rich green of Laoshan to the crisp sweetness of Dragonwell.

The aroma of the Jingshan steeping in a glass tumbler is that of wild clover and amaranth in the rain.

Early steepings are gentle but thick and silky. Light notes of cucumber and lavender come through in the aftertaste. The tea is sweet like fresh endives, and smooth like whipped cream.

The sweet florals and citrus flavors linger on the tongue and in the back of the throat, making for a wonderfully refreshing summer brew.
