Mei Zhan Zhen

Product code: CSTN-42

From the summit of Mount Zhenghe in Fujian (China), the long golden buds of this black tea are seductive simply from the chocolaty smell of the dry leaves! Once infused, they deploy intoxicating scents of lavender, lemon grass and hemlock.

The liquor is rich, velvety and offers nuances of very refined pastries.

A glorious tea, generous and unforgettable!
