Dongshan green tea - first brewing

It’s about time for another cup of tea!

I recently bought this lovely green tea, fresh from this year’s spring crop in mainland China. They were brewing it in the shop I was in last weekend and after a taste, I had to bring some home. It is not as light as some green teas, by that I mean that there is a feeling of some thickness on the tongue which makes it seem subtly richer, almost nutty. You can see above, the lovely, transparent colour of the brewed tea.

I like to make my green tea in that pot. It is an Yixing pot from China. The clay from that area is famous and reputedly makes the best teapots.  They come in all shapes and sizes. More on that one day perhaps! (For more information right now, click here!)

You can see in the photo below how beautiful the leaves are… very fine and green.
