Shimen Green Mountain Peak Green Tea

石门银峰

The Origin Story

Each year, we spend the early spring in Asia with our tea masters and producers, sourcing green teas that truly represent the essence of the season: bursting with sweet, delicate flavour. We look for nuances of taste that can only come from authentic terroir and the work of the tea master – the unique signature of each batch. We pack them directly at origin to lock in the freshness, ensuring they reach you in the same way that they left the garden.

We found our Shimen Green Mountain Peak in organic, biodiverse gardens at elevation of over 1,000m on the spectacular Wuling mountain range. The local monastery is where the Chinese expression 茶禅一味 originated (which expresses the close connection between Zen and tea) and you’ll find this painted on the walls of tea houses in beautiful calligraphy. A vibrant jade-green, abundant with floral aroma and rich with nutty undertones. Thick and satisfyingly sweet, this tea is highly prized at origin, and was registered with its own trademark in 2012. It’s rarely found outside of China. The tea master there has particularly strict picking methods: always pick on a dry day, always pick the best buds and only the bud. The result is beautifully downy tips on the dry leaf, that renders an infusion that’s abundantly floral, thick and sweet. Known in Chinese as ‘Yinfeng’ this means ‘silver’ and ‘peak’, much like the shape of the leaf.

    This tea is wonderful and has now become my favourite. It has a clean, sweet taste similar to Sichuan Dew and Japanese Sencha but very slightly more floral. I reinfuse the leaves three times and it still has good flavour on the third cup. Thanks to Jing for offering this lovely tea!
