初沖茶

初採茶,又稱“初採茶”或“初採茶”,是指茶樹(Camellia sinensis)在生長季節最早採摘的茶葉。它通常生產出一批獨特且珍貴的茶葉,具有獨特的風味、香氣和特徵。

初摘茶通常在春季,茶樹從冬季休眠中甦醒後立即採收。在此期間發芽的茶葉幼嫩、充滿活力且營養豐富,形成了獨特的風味特徵,通常被描述為細膩、新鮮和爽快。葉子通常是手工採摘的,以確保只收穫最優質的葉子。

初紅茶在茶鑑賞家中備受推崇,常常與印度大吉嶺茶、日本宇治茶和中國毛峰茶等優質茶聯繫在一起。初摘茶的滋味和香氣因地域、海拔、氣候條件、加工方法等因素的不同而有很大差異,從而形成多種多樣的風味和特點。

Longjing tastes sweet, mellow, and rounded. It has a fresh, snap-pea and slightly chestnut and butter fragrance, a toasty smooth flavor with delicate nutty notes. It's never astringent or bitter-tasting when brewed correctly. Regular consumption is known to lower blood pressure and help keep cholesterol levels under control, thus helping to prevent atherosclerosis and lowering the risk of heart attack, stroke, and coronary heart disease. Longjing is grown in the mountains around the West Lake area of Hangzhou in the central coastal province of Zhejiang, an area long believed to be proof of Heaven on Earth. The area has been producing critically acclaimed green teas since at least the Song Dynasty, when Lu Yu, the famous author, mentioned the region in The Classic of Tea. Hangzhou and specifically the area around Xihu (West Lake) is known for a mild, temperate, and often rainy climate, creating the perfect terroir to maximize flavor. In the village of Longjing, Dragon Well refers to an auspicious local well, where the swirling rainwater with particularly dense groundwater gives the impression of dragons beneath the surface. Longjing was named after that well near the Old Longjing Temple some 1700 years ago. While digging the well, a farmer found a unique dragon-shaped stone and called it Dragon Well. A popular legend is that a dragon lived near the well and during an extreme drought, the dragon saved the village by providing rain. In any case, Longjing tea grown in the area of Dragon Well is magical, fragrant, and the most highly praised green tea.  Once designated as a tribute tea, offered to visit dignitaries, it is frequently found listed among the Ten Famous Teas of China, (aka Zhong Guo Shi Da Ming Cha 中国十大名茶 .) Longjing tea was made famous by the Qing Emperors who loved Hangzhou City. While visiting Hu Gong Temple, Emperor Qian Long loved Longjing tea so much that he claimed the eighteen bushes for himself ranking them as Tribute Tea Trees. Visitors can still admire these vibrant trees today at the foot of Shi Feng Mountain.
