Huiming - Zhejiang
惠明 (Huì míng) Huiming
Huiming Tea is a traditional tea from Zhejiang Province and little-known in spite of having won a gold medal at the 1915 world fair. The tea cultivar is named after the Huiming Temple in Jingning She Nationality County, the only minority Autonomous County in Zhejiang Province. Huiming Tea was once called “White Tea” in ancient China. It was said that the tea was first planted in Jingning during 847 to 859 A.D.
The curly leaves accompanied by generous buds features yellowish ivory young leaves and assume white color after steeped, boasting fine color, aroma and taste. Herbaceous accents bring to mind fiddle-heads, tarragon, buttered green beans, and freshly cut hay, while its floral side has highlights of sweet clover and narcissus, as well as a subtle hint of white peach in the finish. Round and satisfying, this green tea is just as balanced in the nose as on the tongue.
