Imagine the quiet early morning sensation of standing amongst vibrant blades of spring grass still gleaming with morning dew. Our unroasted Dong Ding or Frozen Summit captures the fresh, lush, earthy and bright moments of the vibrant season. The subtle nectar sweetness that reminds us of honeysuckle balances the hint of grassy notes (like that of cooked spinach), and nuttiness of roasted chestnuts. What makes our tea so good?
