Description

Vibrant green, creamy sweet, and delicately grassy, this green tea was produced from leaves grown on the Taoist Holy Mountain, Laoshan. This mountain is so far North that the tea shares many flavor qualities with fine Japanese Gyokuro, since the leaves are allowed to grow in the shade of mist from the ocean, less than a mile away. Almost impossible to make bitter, and great in a gaiwan, pot or thermos, this tea will make you rethink what Dragonwell style teas have to offer. The leaves spring back to life and dance in the cup, most being a set of one or two leaves and an attached delicate bud.
