Commercial Description

Guizhou is a picturesque province in southwestern China known for its natural feature and rural villages. Growing there are many types of teas that offer sweet fruit notes and soft floral nuances. This green tea is from the Meitan county in Guizhou and bears white grape and plum notes with a blossomy finish from its slender, curly deep green leaves. It was love at first sip.

This is an unusually fruity green tea. The dry leaves have a strong floral and stone fruit aroma. The first time I tried it I used too much tea and brewed it for too long, and the result was overly sweet and astringent. The second time I used a little less tea and brewed it for around 1:40, resulting in a more complex flavor, starting with a mildly tart grape-like note and an undertone of cooked carrots and turning into a sweet plum taste that stuck to the top of my mouth and lingered along with the lightly floral finish. It's closer in taste to a light oolong than to a typical green tea so I'd recommend it to an oolong lover who dislikes more vegetal or grassy green teas.

For some reason this is categorized as decaffeinated here. I'm fairly certain it isn't.

Edit: I tried brewing this even more lightly, with less leaf and for 1:30. It tasted more like I would expect a lightly fruity green tea to taste like. I like it both ways, and the versatility gives it more points from me.
