Plucked in the early spring on a mountain in Fujian Province, this tea is one of the highlights of Chinese tea history. Only the unopened buds are plucked soon after they appear on the bush. These very tight and needle-like buds show just the right bit of natural oxidation. We think the plucking day was probably cloudy.

The liquor in the cup reflects this with its bold color and sweet, delicate flavor. This tea has a long finish with notes of honey. Always make this tea in very small amounts and re-infuse it multiple times for the best experience.
