The seasonal yield of spring picked teas is only 10 to 12% of the entire harvest for Chinese green tea, making this pick harder to come by in the open market.
Green teas from an early spring plucking, generally have superior flavour and aroma when compared cup by cup to later season picks.
Green teas are delicate; they brew best at low temperature for short periods of time.
