This exquisite Chinese green tea is from the eastern coastal province of Zhejiang, and is the result of a careful hand-picking.
It has delicate, tiny curled leaves that yield a fresh springlike aroma with a hint of toasted cocoa. The golden green liquor tastes vegetal and sweet, with pleasant notes of asparagus and pepper and a full, umami-rich finish. Unusually for a green tea, the bright green leaves hold up well through multiple infusions.
