This is the fresh 2020 harvest of Yunnan Pine Needles green tea from Mengku county, picked March 4th and 7th of this year.
The tea is first fried in a wok to halt oxidation, then rolled, wilted, and dried again. In the final stage of processing the tea is pressed flat to shape it into what the locals call “Song Zhen” (Pine Needles).
Yunnan Pine Needles brews up a lovely, fresh green tea with notes of umami, fresh green grass, and a little nuttiness. A to-die-for aroma is followed by a buttery mouthfeel and a delicate sweetness that lingers on the palate.
