 Details: One of Mike's favorite places in Zhejiang Province, China, is Jin Shan. One leaves the heat and crowds and climbs up a curvy road, up through the dark pines and pale bamboo trees, to arrive at the ochre walls of the Jin Shan Monastery. Here, in this tiny village, locals make a tea that was developed by monks over the centuries. Light yet flavorful, the tea is beautiful with its twists of green and white. Based upon his research, Mike believes that this area was the source of the teas that were transplanted from China to Japan, which started the great tradition of tea in Japan.
 Dry Leaves: Thin twists of dull green with lots of tips.
 Liquor: Pale Khaki.
 Aroma: The aroma is a mixture of citrus notes from the tea and roast notes from the charcoal finish.
 Flavors: Light lemon notes blended in with the darker flavors. This flavor is created during production when the tea is finished in hot woks and charcoal. It's reminiscent of roasted vegetables like sorrel.
 Caffeine Level: Caffeinated
 Body: Light-bodied
 Brewing Time: 2 to 3 minutes
