In China, the festival of Qingming (5 April) marks the beginning of the spring harvest. This tea picked before the festival is particularly rare. It comes from the province of Hubei and its name, Lu Zhen, refers to the beauty of its long, needle-shaped leaves.

A spring tea with fresh vegetal and floral fragrances blending with gourmet buttery and fruity notes. A complex and very smooth tea.

Grands Crus: savour the exceptional

Rare and ephemeral, teas identified as Grands Crus by Palais des Thés are the result of alchemy between a tea plant variety, its terroir and the talent of an artisan grower.
