Topic: Famous Chinese Green Teas
The widely-circulated list of "10 Famous Teas of China" (中國十大名茶) has many versions, usually with the addition or subtraction of various teas.
The majority of the teas on the list, though, are Green Teas.
The list from the Chinese Tea Culture Research Institute (via Wikipedia), which I recognize to be the most official of the current lists includes the following Green Teas:
-Xi Hu Longjing (West Lake Dragonwell)
-Dong Ting Bi Luo Chun (Dong Ting Green Spring Snail - side note, some confuse Dong Ting mt with Dong Ding mt in Taiwan - not the same)
-Huangshan Mao Feng (Huang Shan Hairy Peak)
-Taiping Hou Kui (Taiping Monkey tea)
-Liu An Gua Pian (Liu An melon pieces)
-Xin Yang Mao Jian (Xin Yang pointed green)
I have tried all of these and a good Bi Luo Chun is my favorite green tea. It is getting harder to find really, really good and reasonably priced, authentic examples of these, as "imposter" teas (or teas produced elsewhere and brought into these areas for finishing) have flooded the market.
What Chinese green teas, on or off this list, have you tried and liked?
