Song Zhen Needle Green Tea
Part of Teavana’s Tea Prosperity Collection. Song Zhen Needle, from the Fujian Province of China, is a relative newcomer in the long history of Chinese tea, this tea resulted from much experimentation and research by An Hua County Tea Research Association located in Hunan province. With long thin leaves (resembling pine needles), this tender and delicate tea is harvested only once a year in the early Spring. One bud and two leaves are plucked when there is fine downy hair on the buds. The infusion flavor has a nutty beginning with a mild bitter-sweet middle note and sweet finish.
