Angel's Comment:

This is a rare infusing-durable organic black tea with charming fruity fragrance and sweet taste. The taste will turn mellower as time goes on.

This Organic Jinhao Black Tea is made of mostly tea buds and tender leaves from the baihao tea bush, so that the taste is mainly soft and sweet.

You may be surprised to smell the complex fruity fragrances in the dry leaves when opening the bag. This is the distinct feature of teas made from

baihao tea bush. The new harvest tea is of soft and delicate sweet taste, however, the taste will convert to be mellower a few months later.

Tea Garden

Located in mountainous area with elevations ranging from 500 - 1,200 m, Yaming Bai Hao tea garden covers a total area of 1,000 mu. Yaming tea garden is surrounded by woods and often shrouded in clouds and mist in the morning and at night. These advantageous natural conditions can help prevent the majority of harmful effects of UV rays to the growth of tea plants and obviously increase the contents of amino acid and chlorophyll accumulated in tea buds and leaves. To ensure tea quality, chemical fertilizers and pesticides are strictly forbidden to use in this garden. Based on this theory, Yaming tea garden was authorized to label its products as Organic in 2015.
