This lovely tea is grown in Mengku County of Lincang. It’s a local varietal, a hybrid of pure Assamica and Ye Bai Hao. The tea is fried by and in a wok, rolled, wilted very very briefly and then dried by hand in a wok again. At this final stage the tea is pressed flat again to make is straight and pointy. The finished product is a silver and green needled tea that locals call “Song Zhen” (Pine Needles).

In addition to its beautiful appearance, the tea brews up a lovely bright green-yellow with hints of raw chestnut and umami. The tea is thick and lubricating to the mouth and throat. A fine Yunnan green tea that is complex, delicate and satisfying.

We always use environmentally friendly packaging of our teas. We never use candy, sugar, or flavorings in our teas.
