Classic tea from Anhui Province with tightly–rolled leaves that form shiny pellets of organic green tea. They produce a dark green cup with a slightly pungent flavor. Use tea sparingly and steep for 1 minute at 180 – 190 degrees.

Every time I drink this tea, the rating goes higher. This tea is really masterfully made: I love the minimalist tins it comes in, I love the look of the glossy green pellets in the tin, and I love the honeyed colour of the liquor. The taste is also fabulous: a deep, enigmatic, borderline smokey mouthful.
