This tea gets its unique spirit from its very specific standard of cultivation; only one bud with two leaves are plucked at a time, and only from the wild bushes that grow on top of Guzhu Mountain in Zhejiang, China, and only on Gu Yu day, which is the day when the sun is exactly at the celestial longitude of 30°.
All of this meticulous care results in a tea of truly unique character and flavour; it tastes of sweet grass, legume and hints of wildflower. It was created by a good friend and lifelong tea cultivator of Zhen Teas, a collective of sommeliers and producers based in China and Canada.
For all of the specificity of production, this tea is remarkably versatile and is delicious on its own or before dinner. To truly bring the flavours to life, try pairing it with lychee fruit and cashews for a tasty treat.
