This yellow tea composed almost entirely of buds comes from Sichuan province. Its magnificent young shoots are selected before being covered with the fine hairs typical of that grade of imperial picking! Its light yellow liquor is sweet and tasty. Bold hazelnut aromas are complemented by hints of vanilla and herbs. The finish is supported by its creamy texture and sweet taste. In the tradition of great teas - preferably to be enjoyed in a Gaiwan in a careful ambiance!
