Tai Ping Hou Kui Show

On-line Shopping: Green Tea

      The leaves for green tea may or may not be withered first. Then they are de-enzymized by pan frying or firing. Most of them are done this way. A few are treated by steaming to make the leaves soft, and about the same amount are baked, e.g. Green Sencha. Then comes rolling and firing, often alternately. Rolling gives leaves their unique shapes, such as Tai Ping Hou Kui and Lung Ching (Dragonwell). The leaves turn a yellow-green. Normally there is no fermentation, hence no chemical change.

Liquor Color - China Green Tea Item No. G07806-1 China Green Tea (Chunmee)

This Tea (also called as Chun Mei), the most popular of the Chinese Greens, is originally from the inter-sections among the provinces of ZheJiang, Anhui and JiangXi in southern China. The shape of the processed leaves gives the name Chun Mee to this more popular “Eyebrow” tea. Tightly rolled into an “eyebrow” shape and pan-fired, this tea is slightly more acidic and less sweet then other green teas. Their leaves like a silver blush. The liquor is golden with a mellow, plum-like flavor. Slightly “smoky” flavor notes in this smooth green tea make it an excellent choice for everyday enjoyment. Need a long steep.
