This tea is really quite unique. Plucked and processed entirely by hand at the Jukro farm, this is one of the best black teas produced in the country. The cocoa, vanilla bouquet evokes the rich note of the China Qimen Mao Feng teas, but its strength, richness and intensity takes us more in the direction of the best Wu Longs from Taiwan. An outstanding gastronomic experience!
This highly-smooth Grand Cru boasts cocoa notes with a rare intensity. These notes have a caramelised, vanilla aftertaste. An exceptional tea.
