Description

In China, the festival of Qingming (5 April) marks the beginning of the spring harvest. This Grand Cru picked before the festival is particularly rare. It comes from the province of Henan. It is a Mao Jian, which means a refined tea with numerous buds.

This chinese new season tea is characterised by an excellent aromatic complexity and a delicately astringent texture which gives the fragrances a long finish. A fine tea.

To deploy all the aromatic complexity, the leaves should be infused multiple times with the traditionnal chinese method, the Gong Fu Cha.
