This green tea originates in Meng Ding in southwestern Sichuan. Long celebrated by literati in the past, Meng Ding now holds yearly tea festivals.

Gan Lu literally means “sweet” (as in a honeyed aftertaste) and “dew.”

“Killing the green” (sa qing) or de-enzyming is done in small batches of about half a kilo, at temperatures between 140 – 160°C. The shaping consists of twisting, which is done three times while still pan firing the leaves. The pluck standard is a bud and one leaf.

Use 3g (1 rounded teaspoon) dry leaves per 6 ounces spring water heated to a temperature of 80° to 90° C. (180° to 195° F.), steeping 3-4 minutes.
