Mei Shan is a small town located on the back side of Ali Mountain Area, which is prime tea growing county. Steep slopes, thick humidity and cool evening temperatures make the perfect environment for great tea. Tea grows on the height 500-1500 m, and together with unique climate this gives to the tea very soft and sweet taste. It is a lightly fermented and slightly baked tea.

Leaves: delicately hand-rolled into small, green-yellow coloured balls

Taste

Tea has a milder taste but with full bodied and lingering sweet taste. It is slightly baked tea. Light taste of an orange peel and fresh herbs aroma.

Brewing

We recommend using purple clay or porcelain tea ware.

Rinse tea cup and teapot with hot water. Fill the teapot 2-5 grams (1-5 teaspoons) full with tea leaves for every 225ml of water.

Steep tea leaves in hot water at 95°C (203°F) for 1 minute for the first and second brewing. Gradually increase steeping time for subsequent brewing.

The tea leaves should uncurl for full flavor.

Additional information

This is one of the traditional ways of brewing. Depending on individual gustatory preferences you can you can vary brewing time from 35s to 5 minutes.

You can also use Chinese traditional way of brewing - spilling, using Gaiwan and brew for 3-5 second each time.

Please note, that it is natural tea with high content of active elements, including caffeine, and minerals and some unusual feelings could appear. In that case we recommend decrease quantity of dry leaves and brewing time.

I like oranges, lemons, and this tea with a light citrus flavor is my favorite. I want to recommend this tea for each who loves the citrus taste and smell of fresh herbs.
