Description

14th April, 2021

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.

This year's tea was harvested in late March. The dry leaf smells sweet, green (soft cholorophyll) and inviting, and somewhat malty in a warm gaiwan.

In the cup, this tea is sweet and malty, with lovely umami. This is a smooth, clean tea that I am always very impressed with! This tea has good longevity, and is a great choice for green tea aficionados who want to try something different. I find this tea to be powerfully calming and warming. I get 'leaf' and a hint of cantaloupe as the sessions taper out. I expect this tea to change and develop over the next few months, since this tea is very fresh now!

I brew all of my Chinese green teas in an uncovered gaiwan at around 60-70 degrees Celsius. 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!
