Jade Dewdrops "Lu Yu" Green Tea
- This tea is of David Lee Hoffman's -- The Phoenix Collection.
- Jade Dewdrops is a rolled tea. The aroma is reminiscent of a delightful early morning meadow. The flavor is assertive, with a deep green tea taste. It's lovely. This is a truly delicious green tea.
I enjoy drinking this tea first thing in the morning, even before making breakfast. I find it to be a great way to wake up the senses.
Using a 4 ounce Gaiwan, I recommend 3 grams of tea, at a 175 temperature. Start with a quick pre-steep rinse to ensure that the leaves infuse evenly and then steep for about 60 seconds (allowing the leaves to unroll). Thereafter start the infusions at 30 seconds intervals. I find I can get three to five good steepings out 3 grams.
