Long emerald leaves that dance in the warm water, are a sight for sore eyes. This green tea from Taiping, Anhui Province, has long and unbroken leaves, whose shape is due to the special cultivar and the skilled artisan that hand-processed them.

It can be brewed in a gaiwan, patiently waiting for the dry leaves to warm up and soften, falling delicately at the bottom of the teapot.
Otherwise, they can be infused directly in a long glass cup, sipping the clear and refreshing liquor while the leaves continue the infusion. They can be infused many times, savoring the different notes of each brew.

Origin: Taiping, Anhui Province
Storage: avoid heat, light, and moisture
