A new vintage from our Gutian Old Field Green, from Gutian (古田, old field), Northeast Fujian.
The tea is characterised by a mesmerising lightness, which grabs the attention from the very first sip. Its mild greenness is combined with creamy notes of butter, which later turn into a long sweetness in the aftertaste. The tea solely consists of tiny leaves and young buds, which gives it an ethereal youthfulness.
Our friends have a small tea field in the southern regions. There, they cultivate old, semi-wild bushes, which makes a big difference in the tea: there is an extra deepness and cleanness to it.
