Floral sweet

One of our favorite teas - Emerald Green brings fresh aromas and flavors to the palate. A yellow tea, "Cui Ya", is cultivated in the lush Huangshan Mountains of Anhui Province. These jagged, high mountains are cut with abundant, rushing streams, cooling afternoon temperatures and evening mists creating a near perfect environ for tea.

Lot Notes. This cultivar is a favorite in the yellow tea class. The pluck standard is leaf and bud. The leaves are uniform in size reflecting the care in handling and processing. Leaf color is vibrant green with the look and feel of an early spring tea. 

Tea Facts. Lot was harvested in April 2022. In processing, the tea is classed as a yellow tea (the 6th variety of tea in China) as it receives an extra step or steaming of the leaves prior to final firing. This process serves to elevate the natural aromas and further sweetens its flavor and clarifiing its liquor.  

Tasting Notes. Once steeped, leaves yield a sweet, lush and clean cup with distinctive flowery notes. Delicious, naturally sweet with a nice uptick at the back of the mouth. Emerald Green will finish with lingering warm notes. Lot # CY-2.

Brewing Suggestions. We suggest one teaspoon or 3 grams of leaf for 8 ounces of water at a temperature of 185-195 degrees F.  Steep for 2 minutes. Liquor should be a soft, clear yellow. Taste and see if it meets your flavor profile; if not, steep longer as this tea will not get astringent. Multiple steeps is the norm.
