Below, you can see how I taste and test different batches with the farmer. A few leaves are thrown in a white rice bowl and boiling water is poured on them to the top. Each bowl receives its dedicated porcelain spoon to smell the fragrances of the brew and to put some tea in your cup.
Cultivar: Qingxin ganzhong
Harvested by hand on March 1st, 2014
Origin: San Hsia, northern Taiwan

Gaiwan, dragon cups and water boiled in a silver kettle. On a green 'designer' Chabu with flowers in the middle.
|The cups filled with ice symbolize the freshness of this tea!|
But remember it's a green tea and meant to be drunk light to taste the delicate awakening of spring!
|(My bamboo) buds also start shaped like a lance!|
