This tea grows in the mountain in Hubei province. The newly-opened leaves are picked right after the snow season is over. This tea is specifically made only for special occasions, thus it is not available in the market place.
This premium tea is a green tea and has a delightful green tea fragrance. It contains lots of white hairy tips, and all leaves are in uniform size and shape. Since the tea leaves are so delicate, I don’t put on the lid when making the tea. This way, I can also smell the tea and watch the leaves expand in the water. The aftertaste sweetness lasts pretty long and is very unique for a green tea. This tea doesn’t have a bitter taste even if you over brew it a bit.
