Spring Green is one of the first teas of spring to come out of the mountains. It is a Mao Feng cultivar made to a large leaf size, offering deep green colors, and a high white bud content. Lot offers a taste of the early flavors of the harvest and is an excellent everyday green tea! Our lot was harvested in April 2022. Lot #SG-2.

Lot Notes. This lot captures the richness and creativity of a local farm. It offers a fresh, sweetly vegetal green tea flavor. Lot is made using a blend of bud and leaf, long and wiry in appearance.  

Tea Facts. This style of tea is preferred as an everyday green. Grown in the coastal mountains of Fujian Province. As the tea was harvested early in the season, the leaves are compact and rich in flavor.  

Tasting Notes. Long leaves open to robust spring flavors with plenty of cup aroma. Leaf aroma is rich & buttery. Vegetally sweet with soft, sweet notes, somewhat grassy. Good choice for an everyday green tea!

Brewing Suggestions. 3 grams (rounded teaspoon) per 6-8 ounces of water at temperature of 195 degrees F should be optimum. Hotter water brings its flavors up quicker. Steep for 2 minutes and taste. It can be steeped longer; any astringency should be slow to rise.
