From an organic culture on Kyushu Island, this tea is produced by pan-fried method (kamairi), instead of the conventional Japanese method of steaming. This style of transformation gives a particular balance between bitterness and sweetness, exempt from the typical astringency found in Sencha style teas.
This tea from Zhejiang is produced by the master hand of Mr. He, a dynamic and forward-thinking producer.
The curly leaves accompanied by generous buds release in infusion a tasty and oily liquor. Bright and lively, it deploys a powerful fragrance of spring flowers.
Its fruity (peach) and grassy nuances support its long nebulous finish. A fine and balanced tea.
