This Georgian green tea is made by blending several cultivars together, including one found in Anhui province, China, which is used to produce the famous Qimen tea. It is harvested in the region of Guria.
This Grand Cru reveals vegetal, fruity, floral and mineral notes, each of which is enhanced by a fine astringency which gives the fragrances a long finish.
