An exquisite pure bud tea made entirely from newly sprouted buds. This tea is picked twice yearly in spring and autumn for just a three day period during which the buds are consistent in length and appearance. The taste is malty with hints of fruit and cane sugar.
The tea itself is full and plump but small. It has a high level of fragrance and the tea soup is thick and awash with the little hairs that grow on the tea leaves. Comparable in many aspects to a Dragon Well, but unique in its own right.
The buds are picked in early February and then sun-dried. The flavor is fresh and a little fruity somewhat similiar to a good white tea but more complex flavors. The brewed liquor is whitish and clear, and there is a hint of fresh pine needles in the aroma!
