This is the very first picking of the Spring, open garden picking. After a long winter of resting and accumulation of nutrients, the first picking has the fullest amount of essences compares to the later harvest throughout the year. These leaves has the best flavors and nutrients we need for our body and mind.
Floral, morning dew sweetness, bright, full body, and refreshing. Umami, almost like a bluefin tuna otoro! Great cup for a better morning!
A great green tea requires hot temperature water.
Use 3 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!
