STAFF FAVORITE!

"An enrapturing experience! Delicate and savory, this crisp, vegetal green tea is an exceptional addition to my cupboard." -Starkey

Description: This hand-processed green tea has a dark green leaf with a slight twist. The cup is crisp and shimmering and exceedingly fresh with an asparagus note. It is sweet, aromatic, and wonderfully refreshing - an exceptional tea.

This tea is a Yunwu (translates: clouds mist) tea from Mengding mountain in Ming Shan county of Sichuan province. A high mountain, pre-Qing-Ming tea (the most-prized early spring teas) harvested at the end of March, yunwu teas are unique for the natural shading they receive from persistent heavy cloud cover, a reliable part of the Sichuan micro-climate. Like the deliberate methods used by the Japanese, this shading inhibits photosynthesis and causes a chemical reaction in the plant that gives it a deep green color and its bright, fresh flavors.
