"Jade Dragon" Yu Long Green Tea

$25.00

On the high mountain peaks of Yunnan is where you can find our good friend Lao Cha and his pristine tea gardens. There, covered in mist and fog, he experiments with a new tea variety — Jade Dragon Green Tea. Processed like green tea, but possessing some of the rich creaminess of a Milk Oolong, it soon becomes the favorite tea of the neighboring villages. 

 

Our Yu Long Green Tea is made from the Jin Xuan cultivar. These are tea bushes that are responsible for the rich, creamy, and milky taste of Milk Oolong Tea.

Mr. Young and Mr. Zhang, partners in tea farming, have been experimenting with Taiwanese tea cultivars to create unique varieties back in their home of Pu-erh, Yunnan.

Jade Dragon is like no other – green tea with some creaminess, that resembles Taiwanese Milk Oolong, yet more crisp and refreshing. This green tea leaves a delightful sweet aftertaste on the palate, with notes of roasted nuts and tropical fruit. A sublime green tea to enjoy during an afternoon tea session!
