Mild, Vegetable, slightly flowery

Why we say its great

A handpicked tea with lots of silvery tips. The infusion is mild and flowery, with a long-lasting flavour and a peach-coloured cup. Fog has a taste that is satisfying to most North Americans.

Peter's Pick

Fog Mountain sounds intriguing. This Chinese green tea is grown in the high mountainous regions of Yunnan province China know for some very famous quality green teas. Medium sized uniform wiry green leaves with ample silver buds and a little open leaf characterizes this excellent choice for a moderately priced organically grown green tea.

What our customers and I appreciate about this tea is its ability to withstand incorrect steeping to a significant degree. All of us ‘Steepers’ make errors from time to time with water too hot, steeping too long and end up throwing good green tea away because we messed up. I have steeped Fog Mountain for 30 minutes and drank it. Despite the long time under water it was not that bad and really surprised me. Yunnan greens may be pan-fired or otherwise oxidized slightly thus giving them the ability to steep under more diverse conditions. Once we discovered this we began to promote it as a ‘user-friendly’ Chinese green tea. Fog Mountain caught on and quickly became our best-selling Chinese green tea.

As a bonus Fog mountain has a very appealing taste to most North American tea drinkers, especially the ‘new to green tea’ or first timers. Every tea shop needs a tea like this! So many tea buyers are turned off of green tea because they purchase the wrong green teas for their tastes. These sweet aromatic leaves infuse to produce a soft, smooth and mellow tasting green tea with prominent apricot and plum-like notes and gives at least 3 enjoyable infusions.

Come on into our store and talk to us about why this may be the green tea for you. We will give you a sample to see if Organic Fog Mountain should be in your tea cupboard. We are customer friendly and we love to talk and drink TEA!

Brew Ha-Ha

Green tea is a type of tea made solely with the leaves of Camellia sinensis that has undergone minimal oxidation during processing. Green tea originates from China and has become associated with many cultures in Asia from Japan to the Middle East. Recently, it has become more widespread in the West, where black tea is traditionally consumed. Many varieties of green tea have been created in countries where it is grown. These varieties can differ substantially due to variable growing conditions, processing and harvesting time. Over the last few decades, green tea has been subjected to many scientific and medical studies to determine the extent of its long-purported health benefits.

Chinese and Japanese Green teas differ in processing, therefore are different in taste. The Chinese stir fry, roast, semi-roast and semi-fry, solar dry and steam, while the Japanese teas are only steamed and dried.

Nutritional

Green tea consumption is reportedly associated with various health-promoting properties. For example, it has been shown to promote fat oxidation in humans at rest and to prevent obesity and improve insulin sensitivity in mice.

In a study performed at Birmingham (UK) University, it was shown that average fat oxidation rates were 17% higher after ingestion of Green Tea Extract than after ingestion of a placebo. Similarly the contribution of fat oxidation to total energy expenditure was also significantly higher by a similar percentage following ingestion of Green Tea Extract. This implies that ingestion of Green Tea Extract can not only increase fat oxidation during moderately intensive exercise but also improve insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance in healthy young men.
