Tree Frog Green - Spring Harvest 2019

Regular price $35.00

Style: Green

Origin: Westholme BC, Canada

Description: From early spring on, we hear the riveting song of the Pacific Tree Frog in the meadows and wetlands surrounding our farm. The song fills the valley and adds an enchanting and mysterious sensation to the time of year.

Tree Frog Green – Spring Harvest consists of thousands of carefully selected tender leaves and buds from our 9 year old tea plants. The first two leaves and a bud are hand-plucked and then quickly steamed, rolled, wok-fired and finished.

Tasting Notes: A soft and smooth green tea with subtle notes of citrus and a sweet, grassy vegetal linger.

Brewing Instructions: 2g per cup; Use 85ºC water (below boil) and pour lovingly over the loose leaves; Steep for 3-5 minutes. Very low astringency will allow you to steep longer if you wish and we encourage up to 3 re-steeps.

The tradition of tea is closely tied to place – the region, the mountain, the slope. In 2010 we began planting our own tea to take advantage of the unique terroir of our home. This is the very first Canadian estate-grown tea – an authentic expression of the land, soil, and climate of our farm.
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.
