The best leaves harvested in Anhui province are shaped by hand with the utmost care to create this unique Qimen tea, with its typical shape reminiscent of a little snail. Golden glares reveal the presence of precious buds, still unripe. However, special leaves and great skills in their processing alone are not enough: the secret to obtaining this rarity is great precision in the coal-baking process, which gives it a delicate - almost hidden - smoky aftertaste.
Only the perfect combination of these three elements can bring life to this unique Qimen Xiangluo, with its typical sweet notes of ripe yellow fruits and pistachios, and mellow hints of sweet potatoes.
Origin: Qimen County, Anhui Province Flush: Spring 2020 Storage: avoid heat, light, and moisture
