"Spirit of Spring" Yunnan "Zhu Ye Qing" Green Tea
This tea was picked from the first flush of spring harvest high in the mountains of Simao. These tender young buds are processed in a way that is similar to how other premium small-leaf tea varietals are processed elsewhere in China, but as this is from a large-leaf tea varietal, it retains some distinct characteristics with a bolder large-leaf taste. This tea is high in tannins which give it a penetrating vegetal aroma and a strong umami flavor.
Watch the leaves brew in a clear glass, the leaves tend to line up vertically, some floating at the surface and others sinking to the bottom.
