Description of All Kinds of Chinese Tea
All kinds of tea in China show that China is the origin of tea, the production of Chinese tea culture has a long history, and tea culture is a beautiful flower in the civilized life of human society. Let me introduce the famous tea in China
1. Chunmee Tea
Chunmee Tea (eyebrow tea) gets its name from the curve of the processed leaf. It was thought, when viewing the beautifully shaped leaf, that it resembled that of a woman's finely formed eyebrow -- as opposed to an older man's bristly brow. Great skill is required to produce this very high-quality green tea. The fine eyebrow-shaped leaves produce a clear, yellow-greenish brew with a distinctive sweet, plum-like flavor.
This special type of black tea from the Fujian province of China comes this very distinctive tea with its exotic smoky flavor. After plucking, the leaves are withered over cypress or pine wood fires. After the rolling process, they are placed into wooden barrels until they begin to emit their own pleasant aroma. As a final step they are placed in bamboo baskets and hung on racks over smoky pine fires where they dry and absorb the essence of the smoke.
3. Silver Needle Tea
White tea from China. Silver Needle is among the most revered of Chinese teas, produced in the Fuding and Zhenhe districts of its Fujian province. Gathered only in the few days of early spring, the preparation of this tea is governed by strict requirements to ensure a premium product. This dedication to perfection is evident in the cup, which is sweet and delicate with a clean, airy fragrance. Our 'Sublime Needle' is a Special Grade (Bai Hao) version of this exquisite tea.
White teas are the most delicate of all teas. They are steamed & dried only, so the leave appearance is essentially unaltered. Bai Mu Dan is made from the bud and leave. The silvery bud is enfolded by green leaves, and it looks like a flower. When steeped,the green leaves unfold resembling petals of a peony blossom. That just as a inchoately blooming white peony, hence the tea is named "white peony tea". There is a fine white down that covers the long slender bud. When infused the flavour is slightly smoky and slightly sweet and the cup colour is a pale yellow. This is an excellent Bai Mu Dan, which is great any time of the day or night. Medically white tea is refreshing and is good for the stomach. It can also be used to dispel the heat.
Longjing Tea is one of the ten most famous teas in China. It is said that Longjing tea is the beauty among all the tea, while the Xihu Longjing tea is the most beautiful among the Longjing tea. Xihu in Hangzhou, is the favorite place for the intellectuals from the ancient time to now, as a result Xihu Longjing tea has combined not only the green color, the strong fragrance, aromatic taste and beautiful shape, but also with the famous mountains, temples, lakes, springs and tea which are famous in it. From one cup of Xihu Longjing tea you can surely feel the traditional and proud culture of Longjing tea.
