Tribute Tea: Mengding Bird's Tongue Tasting Set
We are excited to offer this Tasting Set as a limited Special Release for our First Harvest 2022 collection.
This Tasting Set offers the rare opportunity to taste what an incredible effect craftsmanship has on the same tea leaves and what constitute a yellow tea.
Included in this Tasting Set are 2 servings each of the Mengding Bird's Tongue and the Mengding Yellow Tips. The tea leaves are from the same tea farm situated at the peak of Mengding Mountain, crafted in two very different ways: one into a green tea, the Bird’s Tongue, and the other into a yellow tea, the Yellow Tips.
This pairing offers us a special opportunity to taste for the terroir of Mengding mountain, consistent to both, the varietal, also consistent to both, and then the method by which these teas have been crafted – which is very different. Their otherwise common features makes these two teas incredibly interesting to taste side by side.
