About this tea

This green tea is crafted from the famed Long Jing #43 cultivar. The processing method of this tea was adapted from an old style steamed green tea known as Enshi Yulu, “Jade Dew from Enshi.” This was a Tribute Tea during the Qing dynasty and is considered one of the historical precursors of temomi sencha and early gyokuro adapted by the Japanese tea makers. This Yulu Jade Dew is made by steaming, cooling down, hand-kneading the leaf into a pristine pine needle shape and then gently drying on heated tables and light baking until the shape and aroma is fixed. The result is a vibrant and smooth cup with plenty of rich umami and alpine spring green tea taste. During the 1600s, Japanese Taoist students traveling in the Enshi region (famous for its remote forests and Taoist temples) experienced this style of green tea processing and took inspiration back to Japan for the making of sencha and refined steamed green teas. Steamed tea lovers will refresh in this cup.
