Spring 2017 - Green Tea
This Yunnan Bi Luo Chun white tea is the smallest pure bud tea grown in Yunnan. A varietal that is a cross between the classic Jiangsu Bi Luo Chun and Yunnan large leaf varietal, yielding a delicate Bi Luo Chun that can grow in cooler high altitude conditions. The aroma is high with hints of fruit and fresh grass...
A unique varietal of white tea grown in the high altitude mountains of Ai Lao range in the eastern part of Jing Dong County (Simao Prefecture). The tea processing is something in-between white and green tea. It has a strong thick aroma and hints of sugarcane and wheatgrass.
A very fragrant and pungent green tea of Simao that can be infused many times. Has the robust characteristics of Camellia Sinensis var. Assamica with a potent aftertaste that lingers in the back of the mouth. The leaves have been dried into extremely thin strands that slowly unravel and expand as they are infused. A delicious green tea!
This tea was picked from the first flush of spring harvest high in the mountains of Simao. These tender young buds were processed in a way that is similar to how other premium small-leaf tea varietals (like Emei Sichuan Zhu Ye Qing) are processed elsewhere in China.
Spring comes early in Yunnan! A mild sunny winter, quickly gives way to spring which allows for this fresh and nutty green tea. It is composed entirely of buds and leaves picked in early March. The tea is expertly processed in small batches to ensure a nutty thick fresh green tea taste!
This lovely tea is grown in Mengku County of Lincang in a village called "Dofu Zhai" (aka Tofu Village). It's a local varietal, a hybrid of pure Assamica and Change Ye Bai Hao. The tea was picked and processed between March 8th and 11th.
"Bao Hong" tea is from Yi Liang county of Yunnan. It's leaf is quite small and it carries a high level of aroma. The leaves are always picked when very small and fresh during a two hour window of time in the early morning of early March. Comparable in many aspects to a Dragon Well, but unique in its own right.
An exquisite pure bud tea made entirely from newly sprouted buds. This tea is picked twice yearly in spring and autumn for just a three day period during which the buds are consistent in length and appearance. The taste is malty with hints of fruit and cane sugar.
Mao Feng green tea is from Yunnan "large leaf" varietal tea tree. Unlike other green teas it is not rolled and the leaves and buds stay largely unbroken. The flavor is bold and nutty but if not over-brewed is smooth and satisfying. This is the highest grade Yunnan Mao Feng available!
