DESCRIPTION

Its Chinese name is Huang Jin Cha and it means gold tea. This extraordinary tea is produced from China Jiangxi Province’s famous San Qing Shan, a noted Taoist retreat and an United National Heritage site.

Legend says that the venerable Taoist Ge Hong resided there and regularly enjoyed Huang Jin Cha in order to aid in his practice of Taoism. Also it is said to have cured fighting armies and visiting dignitaries like the Emperor Qian Long from heat exhaustion so well that farmers were rewarded in gold in exchange for this absolutely excellent tea. The tea is later named the Tea of Gold (Huang Jin Cha) in reference to its high value and exceptionally high content of L. Theanine.

To us, this is just an exceptionally great tasting tea composed of dark green leaves that are covered in white fur and vibrant freshness. It’s clean and sweet with an intriguing complexity and hints of sweetgrass mixed in with a little wild flower notes and a creamy texture. Long lasting smooth milky aftertaste. Excellent and forgiving brewing with hot or lower temperatures.

BREWING SUGGESTIONS

This tea comes from a United National Heritage site. Therefore, it is imperative that this tea is prepared with a great tasting water in order to reveal its full potential. We suggest 3-5 grams of tea per 6 oz water, infuse with hot but not boiling water for 1 to 2 minutes, depending on the intensity desired. As always, adjustments must be made to accommodate your own preference.
