Pu’er tea is named after Pu’er City, which is situated in the south of Yunnan province. It is famous for the production of pu'er tea and is often referred to as China's 'tea capital'. Ancient Camellia Sinensis Assamica tea trees have been growing in this region for centuries. In addition to the famous Pu'er tea, Pu'er City also produces green tea with a smooth taste.
This hand-plucked, large leaf tea is from high grown gardens of Yunnan, China. It benefits from a mild climate and has a beautiful, rugged landscape of mountains, plateaus, and rivers. The leaves of this rare green tea from the large-leaf variety of the tea plant are hand-harvested in spring and hand-processed. It is rich in antioxidants.
The beautiful, large well-twisted leaves yield a light- to medium-bodied, smooth, balanced and flavorful infusion that is sweet, fresh, earthy and vegetal with notes of beets and corn. It is an intensely fragrant tea, of a jade-colored liquor, that resembles the complexity of the best pu'er Shengpu.
Green tea does have more astringency as compared to the other teas. In regards to this tea, you do not have to care about the steeping time and the water temperature at all. No matter how you brew it, hot or cold, long time or short time, western or eastern style, it will not produce any bitterness or astringency. You can enjoy this blend hot or cold—try brewing a cup, then let it cool and serve over ice for a refreshing iced green tea.
