HUNAN EARLY SPRING CLOUD AND MIST

ORIGIN
This tea is made from the local Hunan 'Xiao Ye Qun Ti Zhong' cultivar, grown 850 m high in a Jiu Yi Shan Mountain area. These organic plantations were planted in the 60s using seeds that affect the original character of a tea. Very rich tea in terms of gene pool. Early spring material, traditionally processed by local tea masters transformed into an exquisite tea with a unique flavour profile.

ORGANOLEPTIC
This tea is made from young tiny buds and leaves carefully rolled by hands to save their beautiful shape. It has an original aroma and taste which makes its flavour profile unique and very pleasant. Dry tea leaves have a sweet fragrance full of herbal and floral motifs as well as baked and seaweed notes. From the first sight, tea brings you feelings of meadow during a summer day. After warming tea leaves aroma develops into bakery, biscuits, dried herbs and a few vegetal notes. After rinsing aroma opens up into a rich sea motif. The colour of the infusion is light jade with yellow tones and a little bit perly. The taste is rich and deep with salty, vegetal, pumpkin seed, and seaweed notes. The refreshing and sweet aftertaste brings a great sensation which makes this tea incredibly multifaceted. Enjoy your empty cup with a sugary sweet fragrance full of creamy and buttery notes.

Gentle Umami.
