From Yunnan Sourcing

This tea was grown in the area of Simao and was harvested in April 2017.

Jade Dragon (玉龙绿茶) is a tippy style of Yunnan Green tea, which is a Xue Ya #100 varietal growing at and altitude 1300 meters (4300 feet (1310.64 m)) on the southern slope Ma Wei Mountain (just west of Pu’Er City). The processing is typical of green tea with sun withering, rolling, oxidization, and finally drying.

This is a classic “tippy” style Yunnan Green Tea, a 1 leaf to 1 bud plucking style. It’s floral, beany, grassy and sweet when brewed carefully. We recommend brewing gong fu style (short steepings at first) using 85C water and 4 grams per 100ml vessel. It can be brewed 6 to 8 times gong fu style, which is a lot for a green tea!

Yunnan Sourcing Certified Organic teas are certified organic by EcoCert SA and are certified organic to international standards (EcoCert is IFOAM accredited).

Always love a classic Chinese green tea. This tea is slightly floral and sweet, with astringency at optimal levels — not quite mouth puckering but not without bite either. There is a distinct umami flavour that arises in later infusions. The leaves smell of soup broth in the gaiwan which is interesting. Nothing about it is memorable enough to purchase again, but it is delicious.
