Chinese green tea

 

What is first flush tea?

When it comes to green tea, the quality of the spring batch is usually the best. Especially when picked early spring. A few reasons why:

  • Fertile soil: without harvesting for months, the soil is the most fertile
  • Low weather temperature: green tea buds are allowed to grow slowly resulting concentrated flavors
  • Cool temperatures means less insects and therefore no need for pesticides use
