Zhu Ye Qing or Bamboo Green Leaf, is among the most prestige Chinese green teas. The tea plantations are over 3000 meters above the sea level and covered by thick fog, and heavy mist for most of the year. It is produced in beautiful Emei Shan, Sichuan Province, in South West China- considered one of China’s four sacred mountains; it is breathtaking, and known for its abundant bamboo forests! Zhu Ye Qing is harvested pre-Qing Ming, and starts 3-5 days before Qing Ming season.
Its flavor is slightly sweet, vegetal notes similar to asparagus, fresh bamboo shoot.
