This legendary Chinese green tea needs no introduction. Its name figures in most (if not every) list of the country’s best green teas. Quite unique in style, the harvest comes from mature leaves, selected for their aromatic intensity, instead of the bud and first leaf. Though many different grades are readily available on the market, the highest grades, the Grand Crus, from this World-renown terroir, are much harder to come by. It is the first time we have such a premium grade.

The traditional drying process of this tea brings richness and density to the tea. Its fragrance is rustic and full of sweet, delicious garden vegetable freshness. Bold character and dense liquor balanced with a soft briskness. Worthy of its Grand Cru status, its complex aromatic spectrum ranges from herbal to fruity notes with floral nuances in the finish.

We recommend to use the gaiwan technique to enjoy this limited edition at its full potential.
