A lovely tea from Yang Ta village in Jinggu county. Camellia Taliensis varietal tea leaves picked from 40 to 60 year old plantation bushes, and processed into this lovely and unique black tea. Through a process of frying, rolling, wilting and drying Mr. Lu (a Yang Ta local tea grower) has brought out all the subtle and complex nuances that this lovely varietal has to offer. Thick, sweet, malty and floral, this tea brews up a lovely vibrant and stimulating cup of tea!
Spring Harvest is Mid-March and Autumn Harvest is Late-September
Yang Ta Village (Jinggu County of Simao Prefecture)
