Bai Sha Lu green tea 50g
The Bai Sha Lu green tea is famous for being processed with the steam to stop the oxidation process instead of being heated up in the wok like the other Chinese green teas. This practice gives to the infuse a particular vegetal taste nor like the one of Japanese green teas neither like the one in Chinese green teas.
The Bai Sha Lu it's a Chinese green harvest in a particular place in the country and also process in a different way. These leaves come from the island of Hainan that is at the extreme south of China and has a particular weather because it is quite far from the costs of the continent. The microclimate of the island allows the farmers to harvest these tea plants before any other in the rest of the country so this is the first Chinese green tea produced every year. Besides this different harvest period also the processing it's different here, in fact, the leaves are steamed, not roasted as usual so the vegetal aromas of this tea are quite different from the ones in the continent. In the mouth we can taste flavors of different boiled vegetables with a definite mineral part and, after we swallowed the liquor, we obtain a delicate sweet aftertaste similar to the white beans one.
