Imperial Green Tea - 2021 Harvest:

Brewing Suggestions
2021 harvest.

Each batch of our Imperial Green is hand-produced in order to ensure high quality. Every year, we choose this tea for its graceful “flag and spear” appearance and easygoing, gentle nature. Smooth, silky, soft, and sweet, the Imperial Green never fails to deliver.

The Imperial Green’s trademark is its complexly sweet flavor without excessive astringency — this tea consistently performs above expectations no matter how you brew it. It produces a bright liquor with an astonishingly smooth texture that coats the tongue. This tea has a tender "vegetal" flavor that is balanced by its inherent sweetness. The mixture of bold flavors and complicated textures consistently earns this tea our highest “Imperial” standard.

The secret to the enjoyment of this great tea is in the quantity of leaves used. If you like to eyeball the amount of leaves used, you must do so with the understanding that this tea fools you with its fluffy and mild-mannered nature. Use more tea leaves than you think you need and amazement is achieved immediately. Due to the subtlety of this beautiful tea, you can be more aggressive by using a minimum of 5 grams of tea for a 6 oz gaiwan. Use low to mid temperature water and steep for a minimum of 1-2 minutes (or even longer, based on your preference), and we have to say again—Wow!

5 of 5 What Spring tastes like June 16, 2021
Reviewer: Leonard Schweitzer from Benbrook, TX United States  
So elemental and satisfying. Tried to describe this tea which I just tried for the first time. I could just drink it and drink it. Since ordinary words fail me, Roy's description captures it exactly. I'd always felt a fine tea must have a robust flavor/taste/character. This one opens a whole new universe of tea pleasure for me.
