Organic Yu Lu Green
This green tea, sometimes called En Shi Yu Lu, or Jade Dew (恩施玉露) is grown in the selenium-rich soil of the Wufeng Mountains in Hubei's Enshi Prefecture. Vegetal and buttery, it brews light and clear - reminiscent of fine Japanese Sencha.
Steeped normally, it produces a lovely pale green brew - quite light. A stronger cup may be obtained using more tea leaves, warmer water and a longer steep time. An excellent tea for those who want to enjoy a green tea without the punch that so many ordinary greens carry.
Our organic Yu Lu Green is pure whole leaf organic Chinese tea, Fair Trade certified and sublimely drinkable. A marvelous tea to accompany you throughout a busy morning and into the early afternoon, a tea both for the dedicated tea consumer and one for the casual tea drinker as well.
Yu Lu Green is available by 4 oz tin or by the pound. Wondering if you'll like it? Try a taste! Tasting samples are available for all our teas and good for at least two cups.
1.5 TSP - 2.5G PER CUP
This tea is one of the best Green tea's i have ever tried and that's the truth.
My intro to Yu Lu Green tea has taken me a few tries in terms of steeping time, amount to use for two cups, etc. I found the taste, at first, pretty uninviting—no flavor at first, then I did not like the flavor I got. Today I think I found the right balance. That said, I would like to try another “flavor” green tea and look forward to another purchase mostly because I believe in what little red cup is doing and what it stands for.
I'm not great at describing teas, but I certainly really enjoy this one - bonus it is fair trade and organic!
Nice tea that is light in color and is not bitter. The taste is hard to describe. Vernal with a spring vegetable flavor.
Very different from other green teas I have had.
Best green tea I have tasted yet. The Oolong is also the best I have had. Thank you for your efforts to bring these excellent teas to us.
My new favorite tea! Yu Lu Green is bright and grassy. A really lovely light green tea, my new go to.
A great green tea, yummy
I ordered samples of 5 different tea to try. They are all delicious but my favorites are yu lu green and green eyebrow. I will be ordering those soon. The little red cup tea co. goes the extra mile for their customers. Just get some! You won’t regret it!❤️
This tea is like a teenager. Distinct and with its own personality, and you can also tell it is still not just there yet. A green tea not yet fully developed into a bold taste but still has all the components to become one. You can taste the potential in the notes.
I use a bit more of this. First and second steepings are 2 & 3 minutes respectively. I don’t normally do a third steep with my teas but may try with this just to see how it steeps a third time. I get a nuanced smokiness along with a wonderful green tea flavor - no bitterness. Very happen I purchased this. I look forward to having it when I wake up each morn.
