Zhu Ye Qing

Bamboo Leaf Green tea from Emei Mt. in Sichuan province. An imperial tribute tea in ancient times, the slender, jade green bud and single leaf sets resemble bamboo leaves, the source of their name. Deeply fired, this full bodied but very smooth the light golden-yellow liquor offers a faint roasted flavor with more subtle vegetal notes and very little astringency. This tea is the official tea of the Chinese Chess Team and is usually reserved for gift giving. Brewing: 1 pkg, 170 degrees, 2 minutes, 3 infusions.
