We are proud to offer a Certified Organic Green Tea from Yunnan. This tea was grown in the area of Simao and was harvested in April.
Silver Strands (银丝) Green Tea is a very fragrant and pungent green tea that can be infused many times. It has the robust characteristics of Camellia Sinensis var. Assamica with a potent aftertaste that lingers in the back of the mouth. The leaves have been dried into extremely thin strands that slowly unravel and expand as they are infused. A delicious green tea!
This is a classic "robust" style Yunnan Green Tea, a 1 leaf to 1 bud plucking style. It's floral, beany, grassy and sweet when brewed carefully. We recommend brewing gong fu style (short steepings at first) using 85C water and 4 grams per 100ml vessel. It can be brewed 6 to 8 times gong fu style, which is a lot for a green tea!
Our Yunnan Sourcing Certified Organic teas are certified organic by EcoCert SA and are certified organic to international standards (EcoCert is IFOAM accredited).**
