Organic loose leaf tea from China.
This tea is hand-picked on the Qingshan Tea Farm in the Hunan province. This tea is plucked during the spring harvest and only un-opened buds are selected and processed. In 2016, the Qingshan tea garden received the UTZ sustainability certification, which will be converted to Rainforest Alliance certification. We hope they will be a leading example of a positive future of sustainable tea gardens.
COLOR : almost clear, light yellow
TASTING NOTES : hay-like, aromatic, mild
STORY BEHIND THE NAME
We have carefully selected a range of 5 pure teas and named them after 5 Nordic capitals; 'Helsinki', 'Stockholm', 'Oslo', 'Copenhagen' and 'Reykjavik'. We wanted to showcase pure teas that are of excellent quality, are perfect for food pairing, can be enjoyed both hot or cold and that have tasting notes reminding us somehow of the Nordics. We tasted literally hundreds of different qualities before deciding on our top 5.
Cui Min (Spring) Qingshan reflects Reykjavik perfectly as it is our only white tea within our range and Reykjavik is a gateway to all things white and wondrous; a magical land of waterfalls, glaciers and whales with their bright white bellies.
100% NATURAL INGREDIENTS
Cui Min Qingshan contains only tea leaves from Camellia Sinensis plant.
Place 1 heaped teaspoon (3 grams) of tea per cup (250ml) into a teapot or loose leaf tea bag. Add filtered water at 75°C/167°F, and allow to infuse for 2-3 minutes. Strain the tea and serve. Do not over-steep tea. Use more leaves for stronger tea.
