Angel's Comment:

Refreshing and mellow with unique sweet fragrance, suitable for "grandpa style".

The first time I heard the name Gou Gu Nao, I realized that how a tea name could be so down to earth. Among many elegant tea names, a tea named "Gou Gu Nao" suddenly appears, making me instantly curious about it. Actually Gou Gu Nao belongs to green tea. According to the local tea farmers, the man who first planted this tea was an old tea farmer. He only planted some at the top of mountain, which is shaped like a dog’s head, so the tea is named as Gou Gu Nao Green Tea.

 

The first infusion: sniff the tea, the obvious stir-fried bean aroma and floral fragrance slowly hit, along with unique sweet aroma, which makes us comfortable. Drink it, the refreshing taste spreads immediately in the mouth.

 

The second infusion: the aroma remains the same and after stretching, the taste is richer. Unlike other green teas with light and elegant aroma, this tea is strong and with a sense of thickness.

 

The third infusion: the aroma of the tea liquor gradually weakens but the taste is sweet and mellow.

 

The fourth infusion: as the taste and aroma fade, the sweet aroma of the tea begins to emerge. Till the fifth infusion, the tea is still sweet and refreshing.

 

Besides, this Gou Gu Nao is especially suitable for grandpa style, especially for the tea lovers who have no time to enjoy Gongfu brewing, which you can enjoy its mellow and sweet taste too.

Origin

Xiushui County, located in the northwest of Jiangxi Province, has been a famous tea production place since ancient times. Xiushui Ning black tea, known as the origin of Chinese black tea, is produced here. The geographical environment of Xiushui County is excellent, surrounded by mountains, which provides the most advantageous natural conditions for the growth of tea. In addition, its soil is red sandy soil, so it is most suitable for the growth of tea, and thus the tea from here is also unique.

Tea Bush

Qunti tea tree species, which is “mother” of Longjing 43, is also called “Lao Cha Peng” or “Tu Cha Ye” by the local tea farmers. It is the earliest species to produce Longjing Tea. “The eighteen imperil tea trees” that named by Qianlong Emperor is also this kind of tea tree species.

History

Gou Gu Nao began in Qing Dynasty and has a history of more than 200 years. The founder of this tea- Mr. Liang opened a few acres of tea gardens next to his ancestral house, which is on the mountainside of Gou Gu Nao Mountain. So Mr. Liang named this tea as Gou Gu Nao green tea.

In the four years of the Republic of China (1915), the tea merchant Li Yushan used the fresh tea leaves from Gou Gu Nao Mountain to make silver needles, Que She and Yuan Zhu, and shipped them to San Francisco, USA to participate in the Panama–Pacific International Exposition and won gold medal, known as “Ding Shang Green Teas”. Since then, Gou Gu Nao green tea has been further developed and become one of the top ten famous teas in Jiangxi province.
