Hojo's Cui luo
I've had no experience with Chinese green tea so far, except one little cup long jing at teaworld last year. The translation of this tea should be 'jade snail', the reason why is because the leaves are rolled into a spiral resembling a snake. It's grown in the guanxi province, the typical cultivar in that reason is Ling Yun Bai Hao. It's a quite distinctive leave with lots of creases.
All in all, I loved this tea and I won't hesitate to buy it again. Next to my beloved Taiwanese oolong, I might buy some more Chinese/Japanese green teas. The wonderful thing about tea is that it's an endless journey with so many different tastes to explore. I've always considered whisky to be the most complex beverage on the planet, that idea changed when I started exploring tea.
I don't know where this blog will be heading in the future, perhaps I write nothing for a while or it could be something completely unusual. I will have to give it some thoughts.
