What makes this green tea special is the high amount of fluffy white leaf buds.
The buds create a very clear and light-coloured brew that is almost colourless.
The cup tastes sweet, fruity and mild with a light background of typical tart green tea character.
The production process is similar to that of white tea. Careful rolling to break the leaf cells, followed by natural drying under the sun.
There is no further heat applied to the leaves. This method creates a particularly mild and finely aromatic tea.
