Green Mist (Quing Wu)

A lively, refreshing green.

Green Mist, Qing Wu, is our proprietary blend of 3 pan fired, spring-pick green teas.  Selected for their respective flavors and curled leaf shapes, our Mist offers a naturally vegetal and herbaceous cup.  You will note a bit of tension between the natural sweetness and a hint of astringency.  This is offered to create a lively, refreshing taste with a pleasing pucker to the finish.  

Interesting facts about this lot.  It is made with 3 varieties of green tea grown in Fujian Province.  We think each contributes a characteristic to the aroma and flavors of the tea creating a complex, vegetal sweet and grassy cup.  All 3 are pan-fired creating the sweetness you will note in the liquor. 

Taste profile.  This tea is vegetal sweet with rich notes of grassiness. Sweet, full-bodied, there of astringency underneath its overriding sweetness.  It is an excellent choice as an everyday green tea!

Brewing suggestions.  Use one teaspoon for 8-12 ounces of water at a temperature of approximately 195 degrees F.  Steep for two minutes for a full sweet cup.  Multiple steeps will be yielded.

    Refreshing, great mouthfeel, not bitter or too vegetal

    Posted by Linda Maylott on 25th Jul 2018

    I love this tea. Someone said in another review it's their morning go-to tea, and I agree with that sentiment. I'm no connoisseur so I can't offer comments in the industry lingo, but it is not an overly strong taste, no rough feel in the throat, very smoothe, sweet. I don't like many green teas because they are too astringent and often too vegetal or grass-like for me. I tend to like Oolongs. This one is close to an oolong, perhaps slightly more oxidized than normal green teas? Anyway, a wonderful tea for sure. I find a washing steep is good to take out the astringency and open the flavors up.
