Sun Dried Jingshan Green Tea is here!

These sun-dried Yunnan buds have all the complexity of sheng pu’er, with the cleansing quality of a fine green tea.  That’s why we love sharing this light and lovely tea.  A delicate counterbalance to the rich and savory Laoshan Green, this little-known Chinese green tea is a great choice for those who enjoy sweet, creamy spring teas like Dragonwell.  

Available while supplies last on this Autumn 2013 harvest

For more, check out how to brew Jingshan style in a glass tumbler or with a brew basket.

Reviewing Kyoto Obubu Farms’ Organic Yanabi Bancha

Recently I bought the Organic Sampler from Obubu Farms just because I was rather intrigued by their teas. I have yet to try everything, but the first I tried the Yanabi.

Steep: 175F for 1.5 mins

Brewed in: Cast Iron Pot.

Smell: Veggie and sweet.

Color: Lite green/yellow

Taste: It’s a very sweet and earthy green tea. I add no sweetener to this tea and was pleasantly surprised at the sweet after taste it left. It was rather lite and not too strong. I typically like stronger green teas, but this one wasn’t too lite not too strong. A nice happy medium. Really I wanted to drink pot after pot with this. I liked it that much! I want to order more in the future.

Sweetener: Don’t!

Tea Time?

Drink this in the morning. Dr.Oz raves on about drinking green tea in the morning to jump start the metabolism. In my experience it works. Not only that but the caffeine content is low enough not to get you jittery or make you crash later in the day. 

Story Time:

I actually tried this at night with my great aunt Runelle. I stay with her when her daughter is away on business. She’s hilarious. We talk and laugh by the fireplace (she lives in a huge house out in the woods with no heat system) and we talked about this and that while trying the tea. She’s a true sweet tea gal, so I don’t think she really liked green tea. After chatting we turned the T.V down and read our books by the fire. Now this tea will always remind me of that.

Suggested Song while Sipping:

Jiang Xioa-Qing “Nocturne”

Tea Time: Sencha with Chrysanthemum Flowers
I’m really digging green tea lately since I notice a big difference in my digestive patterns when I have about 2 - 3 cups per day. Before this becomes TMI, its very good for “keeping regular” if you have problems with constipation. If you don’t, green tea is still very good for you because it has lots of anti-oxidants. In fact, this might just be me personally, but I notice a difference in the quality of my facial skin when I drink lots of green tea. My skin looks more hydrated and bright. Anywho, aside from health benefits and on to taste. I didn’t wanna have plain sencha because thats too basic for me so I added some Chrysanthemum flowers (tea) which my friend brought for me as a gift from northern China.  (・ω・) I really like the taste of jasmine green tea because it has a mellow grassy flavor with fragrant, almost sweet floral tones. With that, I tried to make my own blend by mixing sencha with another flower and the result was successful! In this mix you can taste a mellow green tea flavor (as aforementioned) with a floral taste similar to chamomile but not as strong. The blossoms look so pretty though. They come in a package dried and almost like a bud but when they are added to hot water (DO NOT use BOILING WATER to make green tea) they bloom and look like this. AMG MA CUPPA TEA IS SO BIJIN DESU. (⌒▽⌒)
