A green tea from the province of Guizhou, in southern China, on the eastern border of Yunnan.
Difficult to access due to its mountainous terrain, this province, populated by numerous ethnic minorities, has long remained very isolated and mainly turned towards agriculture.
Located in the middle of a very preserved environment, our producers practice a natural agriculture, without fertilizers or pesticides.

Here is a tea whose fine leaves rolled into spirals have earned it the name Jade Snail. And it is a pleasure to see them unfold, revealing tender and delicate leaves.
They offer a vegetal nose, with aromatic herbs (dill/tarragon), for a rich and lively liquor, between a fresh floral pole and more gourmet notes of beans.
A very pure and generous tea, a fine example of the richness of this little-known region.
