Chinese Emerald Green Tea

Tasting Notes

Soft hay with notes of apricots and an elegant and lingering buttery finish.

CHINA

Green Tea

Origin & Craft

Emerald Green has been famous since the Guangxu Emperor's reign during the Qing Dynasty. The best are picked in the early Spring before China's Qingming Festival. This is a time when Chinese families honour and celebrate their ancestors.

It is said in local legend that the area where it grows produces such wonderful tea because of thwarted love. A young woman, finding her lover killed by a jealous rival, cried so much she turned to rain and her lover to a tea bush. The clouds now softly cling to the mountains keeping them forever united.

Quantity

Use 2g of tea per 150ml of water.

Temperature

For the optimum infusion use 70°C (158°F) water.

Time

Infuse for 1 - 2 minutes, tasting regularly.
