ELEVATION800 meters
Da Ye ZhongTea Varietal

Full bud Yunnan black teas are an elegant expression of texture and aftertaste. Xingyang's pre-Qingming picking has been selected and finished to represent a perfectly classic ideal of the Golden Buds flavor and texture profile. The downy buds make for a thick and rich brew. While Xingyang would usually blend buds like this into fine shu pu'er commemorative pressings, it is a pleasure to try such a pure expression of what their fields have to offer.
