Meng Ding Gan Lu (Sweet Dew) Organic Green Tea 2013

Meng Ding Gan Lu (Sweet Dew) Organic Green Tea 2013


Meng Ding Mountain in southwestern China is famous not only as the hometown of panda bears but also as where tea was first cultivated at Gan Lu Si (Sweet Dew Temple). This tea was cultivated at this Taoist temple over two thousand years ago, hence the name Gan Lu (Sweet Dew). It has been a tribute tea since the Tang Dynasty.

This certified organic tea uses mostly tender tea buds picked in early spring, which are then carefully curled during processing. While the tea buds are very tiny, the unique character of the tea bush creates a bright green tea color, fresh rich flavor and highly nutritious tea, even while using a small quantity of tea. Enjoy the sweet chestnut aroma and lingering sweet aftertaste.
