SUMMARY

Type: Green Tea
Origin: Da Nan Keng Village, Jing Xian, Anhui province, China

It's back! The return of the Green Destiny, one of our all-time favourite Chinese green teas. It disappeared for a while last year but it's back now for a limited time only. We don't have much of it in stock so get in while you can.

What is Green Destiny, aka Lan Xiang Green tea?

Anhui province is known for producing many types of Chinese green tea. While some teas such as Huangshan Maofeng and Taiping Houkui are fairly well known, others, such this Lan Xiang (兰香) Green tea are lesser known.

We've named this tea "Green Destiny" – after the legendary sword from the martial arts movie Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon – because the leaves of this tea are shaped like little green swords.


TASTING NOTES

A light and delicate green tea that’s refreshingly grassy, slightly nutty and has light, floral hints with no astringency. Despite this tea being light, it still has great depth of flavour, a sweet, lingering after taste and is less grassy than a lot of other Green teas.

PREPARATION NOTES

 Teapot steep (preferred method)

  4g per 300ml of water
  80 – 85 degrees Celsius
  2mins per infusion (up to 3 infusions)

 Gong-Fu style

  4g per 150ml of water
  80 – 85 degrees Celsius
  10 - 20secs per infusion (up to infusions)

 Cold Brew

  8g per 500ml of water
  Cold water
  7-8 hrs in the fridge


STORAGE

Proper tea storage is super important. Improper storage leads to flat, flavourless and potentially weird tasting tea. So as a rule of thumb, keep your tea leaves in an airtight container (the less air inside the better) and away from heat, light, moisture and strong odours.
