Pine Needle Green Tea

Origin: Yunnan

This distinctive silver-green coloured tea hails from a small village in Mengku County, Lincang. Processed in early March, the tea is wok fried and dried, wilted briefly and then wok dried by hand again. The tea is then pressed to create a flat and pointy shape - known by locals as 'Song Chen' - Pine Needles.  It brews up a lovely aromatic tea which is both delicate and complex. A wonderful example of artisan Yunnan green tea ideal for everyday enjoyment.Currently out of stock.
