Wang Yanxin is a fierce advocate for small family farming, working with her farmer friends to develop entirely new kinds of tea and help them establish cooperatives
This spring harvest Golden Fleece gets its name to honor the soft, rich textural experience of tasting this beautiful small harvest tea. Golden Fleece is hand picked from wild growth (unmanaged) Yunnan Da Bai tea bushes over forty years old. The biodiversity of the growing region and deeper roots mean a more complex flavor and aroma. Only the most perfect large tender buds are hand-harvested, and carefully hand-finished. The down from the buds infuses into every cup, yielding a uniquely thick mouthfeel. This year's harvest is uniquely complex with cooling cedar, and spiced nutmeg and cinnamon undertones to bolster the luxurious creamy base.
