Guizhou tea

Anyone who is somewhat familiar with famous green tea will known about Hangzhou’s Dragon well (Long Jing) or the Yellow Mountain’s Furry Peak (Mao Feng). Yet, these famous regions are flooded with so much demand, resulting in quality that doesn’t always match how the legends describe these teas.

Smaller tea regions such as Mei Tan county in Guizhou have gained enormous popularity in recent years among hardcore green tea fans. Mei Tan is situated along the Mei Jiang river and its known for it’s super fertile soil, which is zinc and selenium rich.

Mei Tan Cui Ya Green Tea Preparation

As this green tea has a wonderful appearance, we recommend to brew it 'grandpa style'. Simply add 3 grams of tea in a transparent glass and add 300 ml water at 80 ºC (175 ºF). Let it steep for 4 minutes and it's ready to drink.

Once you've finished 2/3 of the glass, refill the glass with hot water at the same temperature to enjoy up to 3 glasses of this tea.

Emerald Tea: Single garden, single farmer tea

In the world of tea, the term ‘single origin’ is hot these days. As you might know tea bags are produced using leaves from many countries. This results in a more stable flavour throughout the years. Single origin teas, however, often refers to tea from one country or one region.

Teasenz takes this to the next level by presenting you a single farm, single tea garden tea. After all, a proud farmer would never want his tea to be blended with others’!
