Chinese Green Tea

Choosing your Chinese green tea

Here are over 200 different varieties and grades of green teas from China with some sources.

Names of Chinese teas

Some of the names are included even though they are simply translations or variations.

This is because each vendor may use the same Chinese green tea name but purchase their tea from a different tea garden source.

For example, Bi Lou Chun and Pi Lo Chun may be the same tea or may be the same style of tea but from different gardens, giving your tea a different taste (due to agricultural or climate variations).

Other names refer to higher grades of Chinese green tea, like Gunpowder (good) and Gunpowder Temple of Heaven (best).

Discover your favorites

The best way to discover your favorite Chinese green tea is to continue sampling a wide variety until you find the green tea selections and vendors that please you the most.

Enjoy your journey!
