Please note I reused the picture of the rolled leaf from 2018 since I forgot to take a new picture of the 2019 batch before brewing!

This is a really clean and fresh pre-Qingming green tea from a plantation near Simao in Yunnan that produces top quality, export grade tea. They produce this biluochun-style tea from a modern cultivar used for jinjunmei. Their plantations are at around 1,500 meters elevation, and their tea is fully compliant with EU, Japanese and US organic standards!

This tea was so good last year I couldn't wait to get more in 2019, and I feel this year's crop is even better than last year's! The liquor is fruity, floral and super clean. There is cantaloupe in the finish, and the calming energy from the polyphenols is as intense as ever!

I chose to brew this tea in an uncovered gaiwan at 80 Celsius for three minutes. I drank down halfway, and then refilled, and continued until the leaves were exhausted. This is my preferred method for brewing pan-fried green teas (aside from the Japanese kind) and it works very well for me! I prefer to use an uncovered gaiwan to a glass tumbler, even if tumblers are more popular for green tea brewing in China than gaiwans today!
