Description:

Spring comes to Yunnan earlier this year. And also spring teas from regular spring harvest are picked a bit early.This good quality green tea comes from Simao area and was picked in late February. Picked one bud and two leaves. Commercial name for this tea is Bi luo chun in Kunming market, but we feel this tea doesn't look like original Biluochun, and the taste is not similar either. We call this tea Huoqing, because the look of jade green leaves is very similar to Yongxi Huoqing (涌溪火青, prov. Anhui).

Light yellow-green liquor; fresh and strong aroma, floral with hints of white spring flowers; delicate taste, sweet and full in mouth.

Enjoy early spring with fresh green tea !

5 grams of tea looks quite modest in a teapot. Simao is being rolled into small cocoons and so it looks more subtly.

Yellow-green color of the infusion, which becomes cloudy after a while.
I use cooler water and longer steeping times. The taste is then sweet.

The tea is of good quality and is suitable for everyday drinking. You can also prepare this tea with cold, during hot days - to steep for about 20 mins in a bottle ;)

The price is $7 per 100 grams.

Quotes - Green tea


„Green tea may lower blood low-density lipoprotein and total cholesterol levels, though the studies were of short duration and it is not known if these effects result in fewer deaths and evidence does not support green tea reducing coronary artery disease risk.“
