Green Jade Needle is a wonderful fine tea that particularly impresses with its handcrafted leaf.
Harvested in spring when the climate is still fresh and cool and the buds and leaves develop slowly. The pickers will only take the first two leaves but not the unopened bud.
Only hand plucking can result in such a special tea like this. The clear, light green cup colour comes with a rich palette of finely tart and slightly fruity notes.
The dark green, juicy, needle-like leaves give this tea a velvety, chocolaty fragrance that enhances the rich taste nuances of this selected rare tea.
