Known as Xiangxi Golden tea, this Green comes from rare old (200+ years) trees in Baojing County in the northwestern part of the province, near ZhangJiaJie National Forest Park (made familiar to many because of “Avatar”).

The high cost of this tea is due in large part to the picking: normally 4 to 5 lbs of fresh leaves yield a pound of finished tea. In the case of this Golden Green, due to high moisture content in the leaves, a worker is only able to pluck 1 kg a day. High L-theanine content accounts for the deep flavor and umami finish. The single plucking period this spring was between mid March to the first week of April.

Like Dragonwell from the far eastern part of the country, this tea is likely to be served in glasses, so the visual component can be appreciated. Use 1 rounded teaspoon (3g) dried tea leaves per 6 ounces of spring water heated to 175° to 185° F. and steep for 3-4 minutes. This tea can handle multiple infusions; add fresh hot water to the pot and increase the steeping time slightly for subsequent infusions, repeating until the flavor starts to fade.
