2021 | HUANG SHAN MAO FENG - 黄山毛峰
We're thrilled to share these delicious leaves that were on tea trees less than two weeks before they landed in Vancouver and we published this post!
Experience: it feels like daydreaming in the bamboo groves of Anhui, Zhejiang and Jiangsu. Expect notes of fresh greens, flowers and freshly cooked bamboo shoots, along with a delightfully sweet aftertaste.
Harvest: 2021 pre Qing Ming, March 30 & 31. Originally, we expected the harvest on March 25, but a spell of cold weather and rain delayed the tea buds a few days.
Micro Region: Liu Kou Zhen, Huang Shan, Anhui.
Cultivar: heirloom Huang Shan Da Ye.
Brewing Suggestions: we highly recommend enjoying this tea like most people do north of the Yangtze River, with the technique often called 'grandpa style'. For this tea, we recommend:
- Add 50ml of water at 75ºC to 4g of tea leaves. Swirl gently, allowing the leaves to hydrate over 45" - 60". This is a very good moment to appreciate the aroma of the leaves.
- Add another 150ml of water, also at 75ºC. Patiently wait another 60" - 90" and sip.
- After drinking ~70% of your glass, refill the cup with water at 85ºC - 90ºC.
You may enjoy chewing on a few tea leaves as you sip!
