Ya Shi Xiang biologique

Try this tea first
Product code: CSTW-112

A stunning Wulong tea from China in very limited quantities and worthy of the great teas from Guangdong.

The dry, curled leaves give off pastry (marzipan), floral and citrus aromas. The tea has a beautiful golden colour and sweet notes reminiscent of linden honey and tropical fruits. The buttery texture accompanies the long persistence that brings all these flavours together in a pleasant ethereal effect.

A tea that charms with its freshness and delicacy.
