Worthy of the expertise of Mr. He, this superb Chinese white tea is of uniform, smooth and fine buds.

The infusion offers rich flavors of oats, fruit (ripe banana) and flowers, nuanced in the mouth by a peppery accent. Its rosy liquor is sweet, oily and full. Well balanced, it evolves to a minty and thirst quenching finish. To be savoured in tranquillity!

This lot is exclusive to our tea house and produced according to our specifications.
