Compared with other black tea, the difference in appearance of this Golden Snail Black Tea is very obvious. It is made with Bi luo chun's shape-making method, which is heavier to a certain extent, thus creating a snail-shaped dry tea. TeaVivre’s Golden Snail selected one bud with two leaves as raw material, the first time we smell the dry tea, we can notice its obvious pekoe scent. After brewing, the sweet ripe fruit aroma will give off immediately. The tea liquid is bright and clear, bringing a strong sweet honey aroma and a special chocolate fragrance. Take a sip, the liquid is very mellow and smooth. In addition, this tea can also blend with milk, honey and juice to get different taste experience.

Tea Garden

An Shi Tea Garden, located in Fengqing County. The temperature here is mild and the sunshine is sufficient. The local deep forest is dense, and the deciduous grass forms a deep humus layer, which provides a natural fertilizer for the growth of tea trees. Therefore, the tea trees grow here are rich in alkaloids and other components.

Tea Bush

The Yunnan large-leaf tea tree is a rare variety in the world, and is best used to make pu-erh tea. Yunnan has a unique advantage in its geographical position: its rich rainfall and ideal temperature are perfect for planting large-leaf tea trees like this. The leaves of these varieties contain abundant polyphenols, as well as catechins, amino acids, and caffeine, like most kinds of tea.
