Jinzhen literally means "Gold Needles": the peculiarity of this tea lies, in fact, in its delicate needle shape. The oxidized leaves, naturally jet black in color, are enriched, both in aesthetics and in flavor, by the golden shimmer of the unripe buds.

It is one of the rarest Qimen teas, produced in Anhui and hardly known outside of China. It is, indeed, a real discovery: the tight needles, rolled by hand, open during the infusion, revealing the sweetest scent of autumn fruits, ripe, juicy, and soft. This unique flavor also has delicate cocoa notes and pleasant smoky hints.

Origin: Qimen County, Anhui Province
Flush: Spring 2020
Storage: avoid heat, light, and moisture
