Default Chinese Sencha Tea

Hello Usenet,

My wife recently attended a restaurant in Perth, Western Australia,
and ordered a tea that was labelled as "Chinese Sencha Tea". The brew
was an amber colour and had a taste that, while not sweet, lacked any
of the bitterness of traditional green tea. The flavour also had
apricot undertones.

Can anyone help us identify the exact type of tea, and possibly a
supplier?

Thanks,

Denys Williams

It sounds as if what you're looking for is Chinese green tea made by
steaming (as in Japanese sencha) rather baking or frying the leaves.
You might find tea like this under the rubric Yu Lu (Chinese characters
玉露) or Zheng Qing (蒸青). It's also possible that Jin Shan Shi Yu (金
山时雨) is made by steaming, but I'm not sure.

Hello Usenet,

Hi Denys

I think you are talking about Puerh tea.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pu-erh_tea

if you like to learn more about this kind of tea, you can refer to the
book:the First step to Chinese Pu-erh Tea.

Enjoy,
TEAroma
