Zhejiang in origin, this tea comes from Yuhang, about 1.5 hours away from Hangzhou. Tea lore relates an account of a Japanese monk visiting a temple in Yuhang centuries ago. He was so taken with the tea, named “trail mountain,” from the temple’s garden that he took it home to Japan. The tea got its name because the garden is near a must-pass route to Tian Mu Mountain, where the better known Tian Mu Qing Ding grows. Yuhang boasts proximity to another historical site, the Grand Canal, and this Green is a local specialty. Silvery strands are prominent, and the dry leaves offer up a “sweet nori” aroma.

The producer of the Tea Trail Mountain green has a little bit left from that early batch, which they are keeping for their own stash. It was kind of funny to read that the factory wanted to keep some for their own use! 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.
