About This Tea

Our Green Mountain Blend is a unique blend of Sheng Pu from prominent tea regions, including Wu Liang Shan, Meng Hai, and Yi Wu. All of the raw material is harvested from ancient trees. We find it to be a perfect balance of aroma and body, strength and tenderness.

  • Category

    Category: Green Tea - Sheng Pu

    Sub-Category: Shai Qing (Sun-dried Green)

  • Processing

    Green Mountain Blend is made of all Qun Ti Da Ye Zhong (Heirloom Large Leaf) material. Pu Er making follows a typical green tea process; that's why it is academically classified as a sun-dry green tea. Pu Er picking is usually one bud with two or three leaves. The teas are generally shade wilted to lose some moisture before being wok-fried in a large batch. The large batch of Pu Er being processed each time is the "mistake" that causes the tea's enzyme not to be damaged thoroughly, providing the basis for aging Pu Er later on. The hot and moist tea leaves are then rolled and shaped quickly before being evenly spread out under the sun to dry. Aggressively intense sun is the most preferred in Pu Er making.
