This famous green tea, from the town of Tai Ping, has a very unusual long and flat leaf shape created by special hand processing unique to this tea. The best way to enjoy this tea is in a tall glass, allowing you to appreciate the beautiful shape of the leaf as you drink. The standard for its picking is one bud per two leaves which creates a clean, green tea color and high fragrance. Appreciate the rich flavor without bitterness, even with many infusions.
