Mellow, but flavorful
Subtly earthy. There's also a definite pleasant "green" or vegetal taste but it's not astringent or sharp. Very pleasant and drinkable.
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.
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.
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!
Use 3 grams for 8 ounces of water at a temperature of 185 - 195 degrees F. Steep for 2-2.5 minutes for a full sweet cup. Multiple steeps will be yielded.
