Lishan is a highly sought after high mountain tea and once you have tasted this tea you will know why. Mr. Chen’s tea brews into a bright, yellow/green gold color. The nose is rich and penetrating and there is a noticeable viscosity in the mouth. The finish is long and persistent. This is an exceptionally fine example of what good tea from Lishan should deliver.
To prepare this tea in the traditional gongfu style use a gaiwan or Yixing pot and 6 grams of tea per 100ml of water at 212°F (100° C). Steep for 20 seconds. Reduce time to 15 seconds for the second steep and then increase with each subsequent steep.
For an 8 oz cup, use between 3-5 grams of tea, about a heaping teaspoon, for an 8 oz. cup. Pour water at 212°F (100° C) over the leaves and steep for approximately 60 seconds. Always remember to adjust steeping time depending on water temperature, amount of tea you have and personal flavor preference. Increase time and temperature slightly with each infusion.
