The tea comes from Taoyuan county, Wuling mountain district, in Hunan.  The Wuling region is a UNESCO recognized World Heritage site, and is known for its craggy cliffs surrounded by clouds and mists (good for tea!).  The elevation of the gardens is at 1,000-1,100 meters, and there is a single plucking each year beginning mid-March and ending early April.  The tea bush is named Taoyuan Big Leaf (varietal).  After withering and de-enzyming, the leaves are covered for a total of between 10-15 hours, with most of the warmth generated at the beginning of the process when the leaves are still warm from the de-enzyming step.  The distinctive feature is that the leaves were oxidized lightly, about 15-20%, which is obvious once you taste it.  Use 1 teaspoon (3g) per 6 ounces spring water heated to 175-185°F, steeping 45 seconds at first, and increasing the steeping time with each subsequent infusion until the flavor begins to fade.

I've tried over 50 of Holy Mountains Green teas and this is one of my top 3 favorites. Refreshing flavor, great fragrance and a nice amount of caffeine. This is, often, my go-to tea for an afternoon cup.
