This early green tea comes from Anhui Province (China), which is renowned for its prestigious green teas. This exceptional flush is the result of a perfectly mastered know-how. This harvest is comprised of young shoots and delicately shaped buds, reminiscent of the renowned Huang Shan Mao Feng.
This tea's initial gourmet aroma reveals a mineral, fruity and vegetal centre supported by a lovely sweet flavour that melts into a soft oily texture.
