Guei Fei

Impérial Concubine
Product code: CSTW-12
Add to my notebook

Harvested in the vicinity of Dong Ding, this wulong tea benefits from the presence of Jacobiasca formosana in the tea gardens, a small leafhopper that sparks a hormonal reaction in the plant by biting its leaves.

The leaves themselves offer various colours from khaki to dark green, reflecting their moderate oxidation.

When brewed, our Guei Fei offers generous aromas of flowers and red fruits. Its amber liquor is velvety and well balanced, with fine notes of spice bread (cinnamon) leading to a soft sweet finish.
