Rangsai Mountain Green - Special Lot
Origin: Yunnan Province
Green teas from Yunnan are rare outside of China - and indeed, outside of Yunnan Province - which is a shame because they can be absolutely delicious. This tea comes from the same farmers’ co-op as our Yunnan Black and Shou Pu’er. It is harvested and processed on the hills of Rangsai Mountain and is of the Song Zhen or "pine needle" variety - named for the pointiness of the leaves (not for any piney aroma).
The tea is very much a green tea—flavorful & subtle. It’s just a bit sweet with notes of honeysuckle, green apple, and chestnut. Not as bold as Green Eyebrow, or with the same spring greenness of our Yu Lu—but soft and sweet and downright charming.
We imported this delicate green tea as a special lot and are selling it, in numbered tins only, until it’s gone. Get some today.

Just ordered from LRC for the first time (but surely not the last!). Very thoughtful packaging, including a handwritten note from the owners.
This is the first tea I’ve tried from the box. It’s a very mild and balanced tea. I brewed gong fu style and got very little of the sweetness others describe and much more of a rich, almost mineral component, especially in later infusions. It had very distinct differences in flavor between each infusion, too... quite enjoyable.
This subtle and light tea is good for an after dinner treat. Ever so slightly-sweet, that honey was not even necessary.
I've been enjoying this tea daily for about two weeks. It
s smooth and flavorful. Will buy again. :)
Smells a bit like hay and tastes like a sweet subtle dream
Its a treat for the weekends!
In the tin this tea almost looks like a white tea to me. I get caramel flavors. Really look forward to this in the morn. Thank you Little Red Cup for offering these special lot teas. They are a lot of fun to try.
