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 !

Simao

5 stars 4.0 This review helped: 0 / 0

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

„‘Ripened’ Shou Cha (熟茶) tea is pressed maocha that has been specially processed to imitate aged "raw" Sheng Cha tea. Although it is also known as cooked pu-erh, the process does not actually employ cooking to imitate the aging process. The term may come about due to inaccurate translation due to the dual meaning of shú (熟) as both "fully cooked" and "fully ripened".“
