#17 Feng Qing is a relatively new varietal first planted in the late 1990's. It's a hybrid of local Feng Qing Taliensis and Assamica. The leaves and buds are huge, and our pure bud pick is just large downy buds expertly processed with light level of oxidation to produce a clean tasting balanced tea with notes of malt and chocolate. Sweet and thick-bodied tea that is hard to over-brew.
If you are a fan of pure bud teas that have malt and chocolate sweetness then this tea might well be the one for you!
