QingXin Green tea. Grown from the same farm in WenShan as last year’s JinXuan Green Tea, this year, we opted to choose a Green Tea made from the QingXin Cultivar. It is a somewhat fickle leaf, and not as disease and drought resistant as its JinXuan counterpart. That said, it at once produces a sweeter, more delicate, fragrant flavor profile. Ultimately, we think its more pleasurable to drink. We hope you do too.

Sold in 2 oz. increments.
Recommended serving sizes and steeping times:
Bring your water to a boil. Use 3 to 6 grams of freshly woken up tea in a 150ml vessel. After letting the water rest for a few seconds steep the tea. Depending on if you like your tea thin or thick, steep from 30 seconds at first up to 5 minutes in succeeding rounds.
*To Wake Up Tea: Fill your teapot, gaiwan, or, bowl, about one-third of the way up with boiled water. Cover until hot and decant. Then place your dry tea leaves in the vessel and cover for about five seconds. Bring the bottom of the lid about an inch away from your nose, and you should be able to enjoy the fragrant bouquet of the tea you are about to drink.
