From Tea Mountain

A beautiful, top-quality and aromatic green tea with larger, freely rolled leaves from the San Xia area, which is famous for the production of green teas. We buy this tea regularly from a small family farm, which has already won local tea competitions with its tea several times and we traditionally have a limited quantity of it. The garden is run in the mode of natural cultivation without the use of chemicals. Freely rolled leaves have an attractive, spiral-like appearance in the dry state. The infusion is light green, clear and clear. The taste is clean, fresh, sweet. Aroma mostly floral, with tones of green beans. The tea is again entered in the green tea competition and is great this year. Organic teas generally sprout a little later than teas from conventional gardens, so we usually come with it in the first half of April.

Harvest time: end of March 2022

Area: San Xia, New Taipei

Cultivar: Qing Xin Gan Zi

[Spring 2022 harvest]

This green tea requires a bit of attention to fully unravel its qualities. One can easily brew it too light for instance – here I would recommend high leaf to water ratios and possibly also longer infusions initially.

Dry leaves smell like a mix of floral (lavender) and vegetal (spinach) notes. The wet leaf aroma is then quite sweet and grassy – like the taste profile as well. Besides, the tea is also somewhat juicy and refreshing. Specific flavours include butter, rapini, cooked celery root, custard and a bready note that one may often find in gyokuro.

The texture is full and spacious with a slightly biting and metallic mouthfeel that turns numbing too. Aftertaste is floral and savoury with hints of sunflower seeds and menthol.

Overall, it’s a refined and a little unique green tea – I’m happy it was the first 2022 green tea I’ve had.
