1997: Eshan Mao Feng
“Memories of the Tea King” – an excellent Chinese green tea produced in the renowned Yunnan tea province. The sparkling light green infusion provides an experience of unique joy in a cup from a taste and aroma not to be found in any other tea. The virtually endless succession of re-infusions that this tea will bear without detriment proves the sovereignty of the green Chinese teas from the mountains of Yunnan. The tea has a highly cultivated appearance marked by tips with their silvery down rolled firmly lengthwise. It has a rich grassy scent, a wholesome taste with lightly intoxicating effects, and a pellucid to lightly green color.
