This tea is organically grown!

Large dark twisted leaves with greyish brown hues with coppery flecks. The wet leaves give very sweet aromas, revealing brighter copper, orange and golden tones to the leaf. A quality thick golden tea soup. Giving bright sweet aromas and deep flavours of ripe peach with natural tones. Long lasting flavours with no astringency, good through many infusions!

One bud and two leaves standard picking. Harvested in Spring '18 by the Chen Family using traditional unsmoked methods, carefully and skilfully processed retaining natural aromas.
