Spring Harvest Trio


Clean and refreshing, green tea varietals are the tea of choice in China. This set brings three timeless Chinese green tea varietals, all harvested at peak freshness in spring. Enjoy four ounce packs of Mao Feng Shui, Dragonwell and Jasmine Pearls, which include about 30 servings in each pack.

Jasmine Pearls No. 99: Made from just the bud of the tea bush, this lovely green tea is fired to neutralize the oxidizing enzyme, then hand rolled into tiny pearls and placed amidst just-picked jasmine blossoms for scenting, no less than five times. A transcendent experience.

Mao Feng Shui No. 8: This spring harvested Mao Feng green tea from Zhejiang China has a slightly sweet, vegetal taste and aroma with a lingering fresh aftertaste. Carefully picked at high elevation, it is exceptionally rich in antioxidants for greater feng shui enhancement.

Long Jing (Dragonwell) No. 86: Pan-fired in a hot wok and flattened by hand, Dragonwell (also known as "Long Jing) is for many the most famous green tea. The best comes from Hangzhou, near the spring where a dragon was said to dwell. We prize its pale emerald color and slightly sweet, chestnut-like taste.

Jasmine Pearls

Chinese Green Tea

In northern Fujian Province, China, Jasmine Pearls are produced using just the bud of the tea bush. Harvested in spring and pan fired to neutralize their oxidizing enzyme, the slender green buds are rolled into tiny pearls and stored until July, when the jasmine flowers begin to bloom. The pearls are then layered between just-picked jasmine blossoms. This scenting process can be repeated up to four times before the spent jasmine is removed to create the finest tea.

Fujian Province

Fujian Province is one of the most famous tea growing regions located on the southeast coast of China. Black, white and oolongs teas are all thought to have originated from this province. With Taiwan so close in proximity, there has been much sharing of knowledge between the two in terms of tea plants and production. Jasmine Pearls begin their production in April and are finished in June and July.

Long Jing (Dragonwell)

Chinese Green Tea

Traditionally pan-fired in a hot wok and flattened by hand, Dragonwell, also known as "Long Jing", is for many the most famous green tea. The best comes from Hangzhou, near the spring where a dragon was said to dwell. We prize its pale emerald color and slightly sweet, chestnut-like taste.

Hangzhou

Hangzhou is the capital city of Zhejiang Province in Eastern China. Long since seen in China as a center for culture, food and art, Hangzhou is also famous for Xi Hu, or its West Lake. True to its name, this westernly situated lake is a pure joy to jog around in the morning, where one can take in the scenery and watch the locals gather in groups to practice taijiquan, line dance, jazzercise and so much more. Long Jing is harvested from late March to May.

Mao Feng

Chinese Green Tea

Grown in the mountains of central Zhejiang Province, China, at altitudes above 3000 feet, Mao Feng is harvested in the spring and quickly hot air fired. This neutralizes the oxidizing enzyme and seals in the fresh flavors and aromas. The long, slender jade leaves of Mao Feng brew to a color of pale green and impart a pleasing vegetative fragrance with buttery notes and lingering sweetness.

Wuyi County

Wuyi County is located in central Zhejiang Province in Eastern China and should not be confused for the famous Wuyishan tea growing region in Fujian Province. It is an area famous for agriculture and tourism, most noteably Jinhua ham and hot springs respectively. Our Mao Feng is harvested from mid March to May.
