Lot Notes
TMG is hand-picked and traditionally fired in bamboo baskets. It is a high-fire green tea which accentuates its sweet side. It has unique characteristics that can be enjoyed on an everyday basis as it is low cost and offers a range of fruit-like tastes. This lot offered a large leaf, consistency in size and a pleasing & strong aroma.

Tasting Notes
This is a strong green with hints of fruit. There is a light, natural sweetness to be enjoyed. The finish is very pleasing. Aroma is strong and vegetal. 

Brewing Suggestions
Three grams is our recommendation for 8-12 ounces of water. Use a water temperature from 185 right up to 205 degrees F.  This will bring up its sweet notes quickly.  Steep briefly for 2 minutes and taste. The tea can steep longer for added body.

    Tongyu Mountain Green

    I normally get oolong but decided to try this tea. I like strong tea and usually steep longer than suggested, but did not need to with this green tea. If you are looking for a green with body and taste this is the best I’ve had. Great for a daily tea substitute for my coffee. Try it and you’ll see what I mean.
