Huangshan Maofeng green tea is a must-have souvenir when one visits Huangshan. However, even if you know the way to real teashops rather than tourist traps, a pack of such quality as Tea Hong’s Cuiyu would come at a high price. That is why this pleasant tasting and slightly sweet baked green tea is a most popular item not only for our retail, but also export. To maintain consistent high quality, we employ only harvest before the lunar almanac demarkation of “guyu” — the first rain for seeding, around early to mid-April. “Yuqian” — before the rain — is the traditional term for this.
Soft, round, floral aroma with a warm undertone of steamed mung beans and accents of fragrant leaves. Smooth body. Mildly sweet infusion in light tones of malt and raw nuts. Accented with tints of leafy arrowhead and peach skin. Hints of woodsy bitterness in mildly cooling aftertaste.
This is a light tasting, non-demanding green tea suitable for the large pot or big mug. Make it stronger for a perk in the morning or lighter for drinking throughout the day. Use 90~95°C water for a stronger tea or 80~85°C for a smoother one. Remember the leaves are very spread out so visually each gram looks like a lot more than the tighter leaves, say of a black tea. Use ample leaves for good taste, say 1g per 100 ml of water, and can go up to 2.5 g.
For real aficionados who would not be satisfied until they have discovered a deeper depth, a rounder fullness and a more lingering sweetness, we’d go overboard to offer the extreme. Rarest small batches of leaves from special bushes individually processed only by top masters. Such as this supreme quality Milan Xiang Dancong. For those who demand more potential from the leaves for fulfilling their infusion skills. For thirsty souls seeking a moment of tranquility in the depth of the tinkling after-sweetness of Honey Orchid Supreme.Net weight: 40 g (1.4 oz) in Kraft-alu pack
