50 gr. Signature Pack

This premium tea is made up of the purest buds of Camellia Assamica variety, 大叶种 dayezhong in Chinese. The peculiar characteristic of this plant is the greater size (大 , big) of buds and leaves, that gives this tea a more intense aroma, and a fuller body.

During the last processing phase, the soft needle-shaped buds (针 zhēn, needle) are oven-dried at a temperature of about 110°C. It is here that they turn from light green to gold (金 jīn), painting the liquor with beautiful and precious shades. The oven-drying also gives them a stronger fragrance, that is reflected in each brew. An ever more intense scent fills the air, and the buds gently open in the water, releasing a great honey sweetness accompanied by the typical woody aroma of wild forest trees. 

The great quality and complexity of this tea were awarded the gold medal in 2018.

Origin: Fengqing, Yunnan province
Flush: Spring 2020
