2022 - Mimi's GUIZHOU Green Tea

$50.00

  • Delicious pre Qing Ming tea with notes of celery, key lime and water chestnut.

     

    In our opinion, Guizhou is one of the most under-appreciated tea growing regions in China.  At the edge of the Tibetan plateau, its rich soil yields delicious, very distinct tea.

    Our good friend Mimi Chiu (who spent many of her school years in Vancouver), has spent the last couple of years helping this tea garden (in Suiyang Town) to reach more tea drinkers in North America.  According to her, the very rich flavour of this tea is driven by the soil's high content of Zinc and Selenium. 

    The tea is harvested only once per year, before Qing Ming.  The tea artisans learned their skills from Anhui tea makers, so the technique resembles that of Mao Feng; however, the cultivar (Xiao Ye Fuding | 小叶福鼎) is imported from Fujian.  

     

    Cool fact:  since Mimi came to Vancouver four years ago and gifted some of this tea to Geoff, the tea became one of his Dad's go to favourites.
