Our last trip during our Chinese trip in 2019 was up to Gulou in Hunan Province. It turns out that we were the first western tea buyers to visit this hidden valley about 4 hours south of Changsha. As we wound our way up the river valley, the air got fresher and we got more excited. We stopped at the factory of Mrs. Xiao. She has run it for the last 13 years and built a beautiful garden that makes great teas. The Green Gulou comes from tea plants carefully tended in the steep hills above the factory. We were impressed with the body and sweetness of this tea. These traits come from the unami found in the young tea leaves. The tea is fixed green, rolled and dried in ovens to preserve the sweetness. 

Ingredients: Green tea.
