This wonderful smooth and mellow green tea tasting a little like cucumbers or melon and seems to hit the spot in the early summer morning before the heat of the day comes out. Meng Ding Gan Lu from Seven Cups is also known as "Sweet Dew" so its not suprizing it is a good tea to drink in the early morning while the dew is still on the grass. So, you'll have to sit outside to really enjoy this wonderful tea.
Many tea houses in China are open to the air. You feel part of the environment, breathing in fresh air and increasing your own chi. As you sip, you are experiencing the chi of the tea. This tea works at the throat chakra, to clear any blockages. As the liquor works its way through the subtle energy pathways, breath in and focus on your Third Eye. The chi will be directed there easily as this tea has lovely subtle energy that moves well to where your thoughts go. It is lovely and light, so enjoy the feelings of bliss you will undoubtably feel.
