This famous Chinese Tea is from the south of Anhui province. Freshly plucked leaf tips are made up into a rosette by hand, then pressed flat and dried. Only the bud and the super top leaves are used in this special process. This is a very tender tea and needs to be treated carefully, brew with hot water at a temperature of 75 to 80 degrees centigrade and leave to infuse for 1 to 3 minutes. Re-infuse as often as you can before the flavor disappears. For best results a glass tea pot or sturdy Brandy glass show this unfolding to the best effect.
