Here is a beautiful white tea with silky buds from the Rift Valley in Kenya. This terroir has the ideal climatic conditions for growing tea. Amongst these, our favourite, the high altitude. A Chinese cultivar was established there to produce this Yin Zhen style and the result is simply magnificent.
Guizhou Yin Zhen BiologiqueAiguilles d'argent
Cultivated organically and produced as a traditional Yin Zhen, but coming from a wilder and higher altitude terroir in the province of Guizhou. This Chinese white tea, made purely of downy buds, is instantly visually pleasing.
The rich, lively and silky liqueur fills the mouth with its fruity and vegetal (straw, mushroom) aromas.
Long and delicate, its finish is floral (camomile) and refreshing.
