Description

Enshi Yulu is one of the oldest steamed green teas in existence, and existed prior to tea making its way over to Japan from the east coast of China. This tea has been produced in a similar manner for centuries. This is a higher grade selection and it is certified organic to Chinese standards. The highest grade, which was an imperial tribute tea in the past, is pure tips. That grade is considerably more expensive, however, so I feel this grade is the best price/quality ratio. This is a truly lovely tea, and one of my favorite green teas of the year so far!

This tea was harvested in early April. The dry leaf smells vegetal, but with sweet and complex aromas under the initial vegetal cloud that emanates from the bag. There are some grassy notes once the initial aroma from the dry leaf passes. 

In the cup, this tea is vegetal and beany, with lovely umami. There are also caramel notes in the finish, and surprising huigan. This is a smooth, clean tea that I am very impressed with!

I got some marine notes in the third brew as well. This tea has good longevity, and is a great choice for green tea aficionados who want to try something different!

I brew all of my green tea in an uncovered gaiwan at 80-85C. I tend to use around a tablespoon of leaf for 150ml, and sip as soon as the gaiwan is cool enough to drink from. I drink around 1/3 of the way down, and top up. I refill in this manner until the leaves are exhausted. A porcelain teapot or Japanese kyusu would also work well with this (or any other) green tea!
