Guizhou is a picturesque province in southwestern China known for its natural feature and rural villages. Growing there are many types of teas that offer sweet fruit notes and soft floral nuances. This green tea is from the Meitan county in Guizhou and bears white grape and plum notes with a blossomy finish from its slender, curly deep green leaves. It was love at first sip. Steep at 180°F for 2-3 minutes
It smells and tastes like medicine. I kept grimacing every time I took a sip and wasn't able to finish my cup. However, I have heard that the second and third steeps are better even if I didn't try it. myself.
Really glad I went back for a second infusion on this one. The first infusion was a bit too astringent for my taste, and I couldn't catch any of the grape or plum notes mentioned in the description. I'm glad I kept an open mind, because this tea really shines on its second and third infusions! Floral and fruity with a pleasant aftertaste.
