Chinese loose leaf green tea: including Pinhead Gunpowder, Chun Mee, Green Earl Grey & Dragon Well (Lung Ching).
Chinese loose leaf green tea is a national drink in China. We offer a comprehensive choice of loose green China tea. These include many famous Tribute teas which have traditionally been presented exclusively to emperors over the centuries. These teas have quite different characteristics from Zhejiang Province to wonderful teas from Yunnan and Anhui Provinces, otherwise better known for their black teas. Gunpowder, Chun Mee and Pi Luo Chun are amongst the most famous. Chinese green teas are less vivid in colour than Japanese green teas and produce a crystal clear liquor with a colour anything between orangy green to pale pink. Green China teas are purer in taste and less grassy than Japanese green teas. Green teas from China include Gunpowder – rolled into tiny balls between 1 and 3 millimetres in diameter, and Chun Mee made from leaves one centimetre long.
