Tian Mu Qing Ding
Main Flavor Profile:
Medium - high

An exceptional spring green, this high-mountain cultivar is harvested only for a brief period in early April. Heavenly Blue Peak (Tian Mu Qing Ding) is grown in bamboo forest preserves of Tian Mu Mountains, in Zhejiang Province. Literally translated as "eye of heaven green peak", our high-grade Qing Ding lot offers the tea lover an opportunity to enjoy a wonderfully aromatic and flavorful tea. Lot #8.

Lot Notes. Our lot offers all of the attributes we seek in this tea: organic, an enticing leaf appearance, high aroma, and, once steeped, captivating, enduring flavors.  

Tea Facts. Grown organically, farm's topography is steep & rugged mountains. Tea bushes are interspersed with bamboo. Heavenly Blue is harvested a bit later than most high-grade green teas due to the farm's high elevation with the bushes being slow coming out of dormancy. Harvest date is mid-April 2024. Pluck standard is leaf and bud. 

Tasting Notes. The taste is complex, layered with a wonderful natural sweetness. Flavor is grassy, fresh spring vegetables with a lingering finish of wild flower honey. Good tea with food and with your afternoon break. 

Brewing Suggestions. Use 2.5-3 grams for 6-8 oz. of water and 4-5 grams with 12 ounces. Best prepared with water at 185-195 degrees F. and steep the leaves for approximately 2 minutes & taste. A short steep emphasizes the delicate layered notes of this cultivar. A longer infusion will produce more intensity, with a bit more pungency. Drain the water off the leaves for added steeps.
