Yu Lu Green
Origin: Hubei Province
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 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 3.75 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.
Please see our Brewing Guidelines for more information.

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!❤️
Very happy with the products and at all the service you have given
I really like the flavor. It's my new favorite green tea.
This tea is great, like all their teas.
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.
