Excellent staple green tea

This, along with the RTC long jing, is my staple daily tea and has been for many years now. It's fairly strong for a green tea, with a rounded, grassy, fresh flavour. There's none of the astringency associated with a lot of lower quality green tea, and you can get 2 good brews from the same leaves.

Gorgeous

Such a lovely sweet flavour. The more times you brew the better it gets. Don't leave it seeping for too long though, otherwise it tastes bitter. Lovely tea.

China

Anshun, Guizou

Our phenomenal Green Whole Leaf comes from the Anshun area of Guizou in the South West of China. The area is remote and largely unspoilt with abundant forests and cloud cover draping the mountains - making it the ideal terroir for tea.
