This classic Chinese green tea is harvested in spring each year and stir fried by Farmer Ge in West Lake, located in the east China. The premium processed dry tea leaves are smooth and flat with a uniform size. They have a golden-green color. After steeping them in hot water, they taste fresh with an earthy aroma. The brewed water is clear and bright with a lighter shade of the golden-green color.
The tea is acknowledged as a famous Chinese Tribute tea.
How To Brew
These are suggested brewing instructions. We encourage you to experiment and share your own brewing methods as you continue to grow in the tea culture. If you're new to tea this is a good way to start.
Use 2 grams (1/2 tablespoon dried tea leaves) for 8 fl. oz. water in your favorite teapot or infuser (use bottled drinking water for best flavor, let boil and sit to cool slightly for 2-3 minutes). Steep for 2-3 minutes or for a shorter period of time if you would like to taste the subtle flavors of the tea. Leaves may be infused at least 3 times.
