Longjing QuntiTea Varietal

Mr. He’s daughter Qingqing, co-owner of Verdant Tea, pioneered this finishing style with her father. She loves the long delicate twisting technique for the way the leaves dance in a glass pitcher as they unfold yielding a delicate nuanced brew that lasts over multiple steepings. The hand pulled and twisted finish on this classic spring harvest shows off the delicious tea buds that the family picks with so much care, cultivating with sustainable chemical free farming, and fed by sweet mountain spring water.
