Eight hundred years ago, Qu Hao green tea was the most revered green tea. The Song Dynasty's emperor, Song Ren Zhong, enjoyed the tea very much. Emperor Song Ren Zhong was known as one of the most prominent tea connoisseurs of his time. The name Qu Hao means ‘curved hairy tips’ and comes from the particularly narrow, rich green leaves that look like tiny hooks. Tea harvested in early spring before the Qingming festival (15th day after the spring equinox), is sought after for its delicate and refined notes. This luxuriously rich organic green tea from high mountains steeps ethereal notes of artichokes and asparagus with hints of roasted corn. This delicate, rare loose leaf tea is rich in health-enhancing theanine and offers a clean, light liquor with the most refreshingly delicate and soothing flavor. A beautiful pale green cup with again a lot of umami, notes of sweet boiled corn, peas, sweet clean finish, very pleasing.
