Brewing Suggestions

Pan Long Yin Hao is one of the many fine green teas from the Zhejiang Province of China. Pan Long, meaning coiled dragon, is used to describe the medium size leaves that are hand-rolled into coiled, round shapes. Yin Hao refers to silver furry tips blended with the dark green leaves.

Pan Long Yin Hao is a no-nonsense green tea with a simple, straightforward flavor profile. Melded with the vegetal green is a bit of nuttiness that finishes with a smooth and substantial mouth-feel. Additionally, it is forgiving enough that if you're one of those "I've got to drink my tea hot" people, our Pan Long Yin Hao will brew well even with near boiling water. Those who want to fiddle a bit and experiment with milder temperatures will discover the layers of subtlety from this superior green tea.

We completely enjoyed our cupping of this superior quality green tea and are honored to share it with you.


Even though Pan Long is forgiving and may be brewed with a wider range of water temperatures than some more fragile green teas, we recommend water around 170 degrees F, starting in a room-temperature gaiwan (not pre-warmed), and brewing with the gaiwan uncovered until the leaves are fully open so that you can enjoy watching the leaves unfurl.
