standard green tea once again measures up to the fantastic quality we have
grown to expect year after year. It's always forgiving, no matter how it is
brewed. It always provides the unique, sweet flavor profile and is always
beautifully handcrafted in the "two leaf and a bud" sets. Sometimes
called "flag and spear", the description connotes the shape of the
infused leaf with its two freshly opened leaves and single unopened bud.
Imperial Green tea is known for its bright, clear liquor and lush, full
mouth-feel with a long-lasting aftertaste. With its fresh springtime fragrance,
soothingly sweet flavor, and weighty feeling of glycerin in the mouth, Imperial
Green is everything an emperor could desire and a tea that few others may hope
to experience. There is not much else we can say for this consistently great
tea except that it is remarkable in every sense of the word and worthy of
anyone's Imperial standard.
Due to the
fluffy nature of the leaves, we recommend a minimum of 5 grams of tea per 6
oz. of water. If you are "eye balling" the quantity of leaves use,
please use more than you think you need to ensure correct level of flavor.
