Add to my notebook

Easily recognizable by its long slender leaves, this classic Chinese green tea comes from Huo Shan County (litt. “Huo Shan Yellow Buds”) in province of Anhui.

Well known for its refined visual and delicate aromas, it has been an imperial tribute since the Ming Dynasty (14th Century).

Its refreshing, zesty and slightly acidic liquor is light in tannins. This fine tea expresses very little bitterness in the mouth. Notes of green peas accompanied by heady floral fragrances fill the silky liquor, stretching smoothly into a long, sweet finish.

Infusion Beaker by CS

After the pouring the water onto the leaves, the transparency of the glass will display the pleasant spectacle of their waltz, and the gradual darkening of the liquor. The infusion beaker is a perfect accessory for fans of tea in free infusion, which lends itself particularly well to large-leaf and herbal teas.
