Yu Hua - Rainflower 

Jiangsu Province, China
This green tea requires great skill and dexterity to make. The distinctive appearance is like that of a pine needle - produced from small leaves of spring picked tea. The name comes from a Buddhist legend of a Zen master from Nanjing, who made flowers fall from the sky with his teachings. The process of making the tea takes about an hour, firing in a hot wok and rolling so that the finished leaf becomes a fine and sharp point.

One of the finest, most prestigious, and certainly most unique green teas in the world. Spring 2012 Harvest
  • Start with your favorite spring or filtered water. Heat the water to about 170 F, which is when the steam curls out of the kettle. (Or let the water cool from a boil.)
  • Use a teaspoon (3g) for a 6oz serving. Please note, for denser teas this is about 1 teaspoon; for larger-leaf teas this could be up to 2 tablespoons.
  • Steep for 2-3 minutes. Remove the leaves when ready -- rely on taste, not color. Use a large enough strainer basket to allow the leaves to open and release their flavor. Get to know the tea by playing with the amount of leaf, the water temperature, and steeping time. Re-steep to make another cup!
