The tea plants are grown high in the mountains in Hunan, China. For two hundred days a year the plants are shrouded in mountain mist. The tea leaves can be steeped hot or cold, producing a rich green tea flavor with smooth after taste.
The shape and taste of this brewed tea will change with each year's harvest. We recommend that if you have not tried this tea in several months since last ordering, it is best to re-order a smaller amount to confirm that the latest batch is to your taste.
