We are always on the lookout for something new that you will find interesting. Our friend in Changsa, Steve, showed us this tea from the mountains(MangShan) in southern Hunan, along the border of Guangdong Province. It is a special tea with golden buds. It is straightened using a machine, so it looks pretty. A nice discovery for us and you!

  • Packed 3 oz. in a tin.
