Wild grown Tai Ping You Kui green tea, hand rolled 1st pick of the year.
Deep valley after spring rain in the first sip, misty morning blooming orchid after the sweet dew went down the throat, then feel the energy dissipates into every cell on the path, sipping thru the upper chest, just magnificent!
First pick fresh tea leaves have the most and richest substances, through a winter of resting and accumulating nutrients.
This wild first pick is very pure in taste and energy! Rich and deep with throat coating sweetness and orchid like floral aroma. Refreshing, up lifting and awakening! Superb crop!
We will make this a stable choice continuously in future years. It's that good!
Wild tea trees are untempered by the human and without city pollution. The taste is pure, crisp and refreshing, unlike tea garden teas. The energy, Qi in Chinese term is very present and soothing.
A great green tea requires hot temperature water.
Use 4 g for a normal coffee mug size cup, off boil water approximately 209 F. Best result with Kungfu style brewing with either a teapot or gaiwan.
Recommended water for all teas: very good quality filtered water, ie reverse osmosis filtered water. Spring water suppresses the fragrance quite a bit. Tap water is prohibited!
