Hui Ming Spring Green Tea

慧明绿茶

The Origin Story

New to our green tea range, Hui (pronounced hway) Ming Spring's bright infusion, beautifully creamy texture and sweet pea and asparagus flavours encapsulate the best that spring Chinese green teas can offer.

Hui Ming Spring was produced for us by Mr Lan in gardens bordering the Hui Ming temple that gives the tea its name. Mr Lan focuses on producing only the finest teas he can, starting in the peak spring season and stops production in July until the following spring. Only the first flush of spring green tea leaves and buds are hand-picked to make this tea.

As with another of our favourite Chinese green teas, Anji Green, the tea bushes used to produce Hui Ming Spring are of the Bai Cha (white tea) cultivar. Like Anji Bai Cha, this green tea is bright and floral in character, with no trace of bitterness. Smelling the tea's wet leaves and drinking the infusion, we noticed sweet pea and asparagus flavours and a lush mouth-coating texture.

Great green teas like this are best enjoyed at their freshest, when the leaves are amazingly sweet and lively, really capturing the essence of the garden. Hui Ming Spring is best made with 70° C water and can be infused 2-3 times.

China - Zhejiang

Zhejiang is the most famous province in China for producing green tea.

Hui Ming Spring is produced in Jingning, in the mountainous south of Zhejiang province. Zhejiang is arguably the most renowned province in all of China for the production of green teas. Green teas have been produced there for 1700 years. It was a steamed green tea from Zhejiang that gave birth to green tea production in Japan in the 17th century.

    Clean colour, fresh taste
    Green-gold on the first infusion, more yellow/gold on subsequent. Has clean, fresh sappy taste which survives well on multiple infusions.
