When brewing Green Tea Powder, Use 2g Matcha powder and 60-70 ml water. In order to protect the nutrition in the tea, it’s better to be brewed at the temperature between 60℃ to 80℃. Usually, when brewing Green Tea Powder, or Matcha, you need to use a Chasen (tea whisk, 茶筅 in chinese) to stir the tea liquid to bring out a unique flavor. The rich flavor of Green Tea Powder is given by the abundant amount of chlorophyll and amino acid in the tea.

Tea Farmer

Ms Liao, who has been in the organic tea industry for about ten years, went through the arduous process of founding an organic tea plantation from scratch. After several years of hard work and development, the organic tea garden is now fully established, and has earned USDA, EU, and JAS organic certifications to ensure the healthy quality of the tea.

Origin

This Organic Dragon Well Long Jing tea comes from Tianmu Mountain, located in Lin’an, in the northwest of Zhejiang Province, 84 km from Hangzhou. In Chinese, “Tianmu” means “Heavenly Eyes”. Tianmu Mountain got its poetic name from two pools, one on the east peak (elevation of 1480 m) and one on the west peak (elevation of 1506 m). The two pools look like eyes that are gazing at the sky.

With an elevation of 300 m to 1556 m, Tianmu Mountain is well known for its forest ecosystem and landscape which are typical of subtropical regions.

Tea Bush

The fresh tea leaves are from tea plants of the Jiukeng species, also called Jiukeng Big-leaf. This variety of tea plant was originally found in Chun’an, Kaihua, in Zhejiang Province, and Shexian in Anhui Province. In the 1950s, it was introduced to tea-growing areas all around Zhejiang. In 1985 it was verified as a national species with number GS13023-1985 by the National Crop Variety Certification Committee. The dry leaves of the spring tea from this species contain about 3.4% amino acid, 20.9% tea polyphenols, 13.3% catechin and 4.1% caffeine, which makes them well suited for producing green tea.
