About En Shi Yu Lu Green Tea

 
En Shi Yu Lu is one of the few steamed China Greens from southwest region of Hubei province. Weather there is humid and moderate all year. Enshi is seldom bothered by extreme heat in midsummer and chilliness in midwinter. Usually foggy and rainy.
This green tea is most likes Japanese green tea. The en shi yu lu leaves appearance is similar to sencha and the steaming process is very similar, but definitely not quite the same. It is a rare Chinese green tea that is processed using steam method. Steaming is quite popular in green tea by Tang dynasty, then the technique is learnt by Japanese and they made the sencha. The first step in processing green tea is to steam the freshly picked leaves. This destroys the natural enzymes necessary for fermentation. The steaming not only helps to preserve the leaves' natural oils and important natural antioxidants (also referred to as polyphenols and tannins), it also helps to soften the leaves , making them more pliable. After steaming, the leaves are rolled or twisted, which forces the cellular structure to break down so that they will release their aromatic juices when brewing occurs. A second gentle heating, also called firing, reduces the water content further, to 3 percent moisture. Repeatedly heating the leaves causes them to dry slowly. After Tang dynasty, steaming died out, farmers in China use pan-fire technique instead.
The name translates as "jade dew" and refers to the pale green colour of the infusion. leaves are long and narrow, the cup is bold, strong, complex with an extremely powerful vegetal scent. The leaves are reminiscent of gyokuro or sencha leaves, but are clearly processed with skillful Chinese hands. A good green tea with sweetness and floral taste.

The Tea Bridge

Chinese Tea Culture

Tea plays an important role in China. It is commonly consumed at social events, and many cultures have created intricate formal ceremonies for these events. Afternoon tea is a British custom with widespread appeal. Tea ceremonies, with their roots in the Chinese tea culture, differ among East Asian countries, such as the Japanese or Korean versions. Tea may differ widely in preparation, such as in Tibet, where the beverage is commonly brewed with salt and butter. Tea may be drunk in small private gatherings (tea parties) or in public (tea houses designed for social interaction).
