Wushan Green

4.6 star rating 17 Reviews

We found this tea on our last day in China. It was about 90 minutes outside of Changsha. When we arrived there, we saw little yellow flags all over. That is a sign of an organic garden (the flags are insect traps). This garden is still in transition, so it cannot be sold as Certified Organic. The garden is owned by 2 brothers and their sister. Mr. Wu made some tea for us. Mike is always amused by watching green leaves & bud becoming fixed green and then the bud changing to white.

When we tasted this green tea, we knew we had to share it with you.
