头采崂山绿茶

Harvest
April 26, 2021

Origin
Qingdao, Shandong

The highly anticipated very first spring harvest of this year. The leaves were harvested on April 26, and handcrafted on the very same day. This year's harvest boasts pronounced nutty and floral notes.

A beautiful tea from the family tea farms of our good friend Mr. Tang. The tiny tea gardens are nestled between the ocean and mountain, overlooking the Yellow Sea in one direction and facing the magnificent cliffs of Mount Lao in the other.

Cool temperatures, saline humidity, and the incredibly unhurried growth of the tea leaves create exceptional quality harvests.This unique green tea is a product of the terroir, mountains, cloud and mist, ocean, and spring water from Mount Lao.

The 2021 harvest is exceptional: rich, full of umami and minerality.  Notes of sweet corn, edamame and sugar snap peas, followed by a gentle sweetness that lingers on the palate.
