This very special Chinese Green Tea, also known as “Ding Gu Da Fang,” is the result of a pure serendipity that can only occur in the event of a rare confluence of climate and geography. Orchid Tea is a mountain-grown leaf that results when the orchid plantations that are located close to the tea bushes are early to flower, and the tea is late to mature for plucking. Normally these events occur at distinctly different time, but when the climate is just right, and the cool mountain breezes are just so, the fragrance of the opening orchids is carried on the wind to the tea bushes. The absorbent and sensitive young tea leaf is gently permeated with sweet floral notes of orchid. The result is rare, spectacular and highly prized.
