A unique varietal of white tea grown in the high altitude mountains of Ai Lao range in the eastern part of Jing Dong County (Simao Prefecture).

The tea processing is something in-between white and green tea. It has a strong thick aroma and hints of sugarcane and wheatgrass.

The leaves are extremely fine and due to expert processing the small hairs on the leaf have been preserved.

Spring 2017 harvest.
