Grown by trusted producers in Hangzhou, China; bud and leaf tea that is picked early in the spring after a mostly overcast and rainy winter, which maximizes the sweetness and tenderness in flavor. Expertly pan-fired in a wok during final processing gives a distinguished roasted chestnut aroma and taste.
Leaves are slightly smaller and more vibrant green that our standard grade Dragonwell. Soft, cooling taste which lasts through several infusions. We recommend making the tea leaves last by doing shorter and multiple infusions, starting with about 1-2 minutes for the first, 30 sec. more for subsequent.
Steep 1-3 min at 175°F
