Hunan Silver Peak Green Tea
The Origin Story
Hunan Spring Peak is a brand new green tea to our range for 2016, sourced by our Tea Buyer, Tom on his most recent trip to China. The tea was picked between 25th March and 3rd April 2016 from Migu Hill tea garden in Gaoqiao Xiang, near Changsha in Hunan.
The tea has a very sweet character and thick,creamy texture that encapsulates the best of early spring green tea. It was produced by an experienced team in a small factory, with each stage of processing carefully controlled.
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. Hunan Silver Peak is best made with 60°C water and can be infused 2-3 times.
Hunan is famous for fiery food, green tea production and China's most famous yellow tea.
