How It Tastes

This is a light emerald cup with a sweet green flavor and rich, buttery finish. The aroma from the leaves is a subtle but complex array of natural scents: fresh corn, green olive, and pistachio nuts. The cup is luxuriant and buttery, with a solid body and lingering finish.

History

This most renowed of all chinese green teas comes from the mountains near Hangzhou, in Zheijang province. Legend has it that a benevolent dragon resides in a local well where this style of tea was developed several centuries ago. Today, the leaves are pressed in a hot, steep-sided pan, in constant motion. This pan-firing method requires great care to match the temperatures with the size and tenderness of the leaves.

Jim Swayne from Walla Walla, WA on 2/8/2017. Drinking Peet's since 2000.

This is one of my favorite green teas, along with Sencha. It is hard to decide which I like more, but they are distinctly different.
