This rare "pan-fried" (as most Chinese green teas are) tea is actually a yellow tea, meaning an extra "smothering" step is utilized in the production process. The brew offers delicate notes of flowers, nuts, and cream. Additionally, it can actually take a hot, long steep quite well so don't be afraid to brew it strong.
Grown in Fujian Province, China, we originally imported a small amount of this tea as a staff-only offering and we liked it so much, we decided to make it available to everyone!
Pure hand-harvested Chinese yellow tea leaves.
8 oz Cup
- Scoop a heaping teaspoon of tea into infuser.
- Heat water to 200° F (boiling).
- Pour 8 oz. of water over tea leaves.
- Steep tea for 4-5 minutes (depending on taste preference).
- Remove infuser and enjoy tea. Can be steeped multiple times.
Simply add to your infuser one heaping teaspoon of leaf per 8 oz. of water and place it in your pot, then add the appropriate amount of 200° F water and let it steep for 4 to 5 minutes. Remove the infuser and enjoy. Can be steeped multiple times.
Brewing Iced Tea
Our opinion is that a cooled concentrate works best, as regular-strength brew tends to become watery as the ice melts. So, use the above leaf quantities, but half the water, allow it to cool, then pour it over ice and enjoy! The brew will dilute down to proper strength as the ice melts.
