Style: Green

Origin: Zhejiang Province, China

Description: Zhejiang is a tea-growing province on the Eastern coast of China. With the longest coastline of any province in the country, mountainous regions, to the west and south, subtropical climates and elevations suitable, Zhejiang grows one of China’s best-known teas.The region of Hangzhou in Zhejiang Province is home to one of China’s most famous green teas – it was granted the status of Imperial Tea during the Qing Dynasty. The leaves are pan roasted very soon after harvest to stop the oxidation process and preserve the fresh-plucked colour of the leaves. Part of the tea’s transformation involves hand-pressing the leaves against the pan, giving the tea its characteristic flat appearance.

Tasting Notes: The perfume of the tea is sweet, with a flavour to match. Vegetal, almost grassy notes accompany each sip, leading to a soft and toasty linger on the palate akin to fresh steamed rice.

Brewing Instructions: 2g per cup. 100ºC water. steep 3-5 minutes.

Certified Organic

Tea cultivation and processing originated in China about 5,000 years ago, and while they carry on a rich and ancient tradition of producing high-quality teas of all styles, their green varieties are truly beyond comparison. The flavour profiles, aromas, and processing techniques from each tea-growing region vary tremendously. Some become silky and smooth, while some become powerful and astringent. Whether for casual daily drinking, or for special moments of ceremony and contemplation, Chinese green teas truly nurture the soul.
The organic teas we import are artisanally farmed and crafted. They may change with each harvest season. The same tea harvested at a different time of year and processed by a different tea maker will vary slightly in flavour and finish.
