" An exceptional blue-green tea with unforgettable qualities "
The dry, rolled and very green leaves remind us that we are dealing here with a blue-green tea very little oxidization, a guarantee of vegetal and gourmet notes. And the olfactory notes confirm it: this tea promises a complex and very rich tasting. The flavor is sweet and based on a liquor of a fairly bright yellow. The tasting keeps all its promises: there are notes of white flowers, slightly vanilla and greedy, almost buttery. A detour through yellow fruits and a general impression of a great franchise end up seducing and leads straight to multiples infusions, each of which will reveal different aspects of this truly splendid tea!
