Today I had the pleasure of tasting a fine Tea from the Zhejiang Province of China.
These tiny dark jade leaves and buds (see photo) are packed with fruity aroma that promised a flavorful cup to come. I steep the leaves for 2 min @ 170 deg f. The wet leaves are med green in color and have a slightly spicy new mown hay scent to them. (see photo) The liquor has a soft mouth feel with a pale yellow color(see photo). The tea has a natural sweetness there is also that astringency that I have found in most green teas.
Tian Mu mountain is renowned for it's pure, pollution free environment.
Because Mr Teaman talk's I would recomend this tea.
