 Sanxia Green Tea

**The long awaited fresh 2024 Spring Harvest is in stock and is one of the best years for this tea we have had in a long time. If you are a fan of the genre, this one is not to be missed!**

Hand plucked without blades and produced by multi-generations of the same family under the watchful eye of a 4th generation tea farmer in his 80s, we have been waiting to stock a green tea like this for a long time. Delicate, soft and sweet, the sweet pea vegetal of this beautiful tea lingers long after you finish drinking it. Made in the traditional style of Bi Lu Chun, this tea is best consumed the traditional way as well. Throw some in a tall glass or mug, add some 80-90C water and enjoy! Add a little water if it gets too strong or cools down too much and imagine yourself in a bustling, smoky Chinese Teahouse.  

Produced at a new partner farm only 20 minutes from downtown Taipei in one of the oldest tea growing areas of Taiwan, this style of tea production is extremely rare as the teas produced in this fashion do not serve the current Asian Market taste points for tea, namely strong, bitter and predictable flavors. Each batch processed this way is slightly different, and the strength of these teas is in the subtle lasting sweetness, deep flavors and smooth drinkability of traditionally made tea. We are happy to support a family still making tea in this old, delicate style.

On August 28th, 2020 we were lucky enough to join our friends in Sanxia as they made some fresh green tea and we tried to document as much as we could. The steps outlined in the video are: . 1. Picking . 2. Wilting . 3. Kill Green(Fixing) . 4. Shaping . 5. Drying . 6. Ready to Drink! . This farm is a multi generational farm and the Master in the video has been teaching his teenager grandson this summer. It was a pleasure, honor and amazing learning experience to be around a family doing things the right way. We are looking forward to many new projects with them in the future. . This extremely fresh tea is currently for sale on the site listed as Sanxia Green Tea (Late Summer Pick). We were only able to get less than 3kg of this tea, (The entire days production!) so it might not last long. If you have any questions about the process please let us know in the comments! . . . . .

Amazing green tea

It's my first Taiwanese green tea and I don't regret a bit for choosing this. As in the description, this one is more suitable for grandpa-style brewing than gong-fu-style brewing. it just lasts a whole day without becoming bitter and astringent.
The taste is very mild, soothing, green, refreshing, and vegetal in the first few steeps then later it becomes floral, fruity, and citrusy.
the texture is smooth and buttery, but not too heavy.
I'd say this one's price-quality ratio is very disproportional in a good sense. 😁

Go-to Green Tea

Great, fresh tea…reminds me of a verdant mountainside. One of our staple MST teas!

Nice fresh and mellow green!

Tastes of edamame and citrus. Very mellow with little to no bitterness or astringency.

I was so excited to have the opportunity to taste my first green tea of 2023 and this tea did not disappoint! Fresh, vegetal, and light, sipping this delightful tea has been a wonderful start to my spring days.

Super fresh with light vegetal notes on the back end. Enjoyable sipping.
