From the Yellow Mountains in Anhui, this green tea bears the name of the monk, Da Fang, said to have created it during the Song dynasty. He lived at the top of Lao Zhu Feng in the valley of the “Ding Gu” ridge. Like Long Jing tea, the leaf shape of Ding Gu Da Fang is flat, due to the wok processing which removes more moisture and concentrates the flavours. Some China tea experts even think it is the ancestor of Long Jing.

This green tea is a vegetal and fruity first flush with notes of roasted chestnuts. Its delicately astringent texture offers the notes a long finish.
