This Yunnan Green tea uses a ‘steaming’ process which enables the true floral fragrance to dominate.
- Tasters say – green, clean, fresh, light, fragrant
- Looks – light green with a hint of honey
- Region – Yunnan, South West China
- Brew – After the kettle has boiled, leave for a couple of minutes before adding to the leaf. For best results, no more than 3 mins (but you will work out what’s best for you). Never ever add milk.
Many Green teas use a ‘roasting’ process which can impart a slightly burnt or ashy taste. Many people’s first experience of trying Green Tea is of a roasted tea and this is often the reason many people say they don’t like Green Tea.
Green tea has not undergone a fermentation, or oxidation, stage during manufacture and is dried whilst still green – hence its name.
