HUANG SHAN MAO FENG
Green tea - Jardin Premier*
This majestic green tea, one of the most famous from China, comes to us from the Yellow Mountain (in Anhui province). The legend tells that a young girl working in the plantation, inconsolable after the loss of her beloved, shed enough tears to cover the entire region. Bathed in the perpetual mists of her grief, the body of her lover, ripped from her by Fate, transformed into a tea tree.
The buds and yellow-green, flattened leaves are covered in a fine silver duvet.
The cup, pure and translucent, boasts a pale copper hue and exudes an aroma of roasted chestnut with nuances of buttery brioche.
The liquor offers a fine texture, like satin, that caresses the palate and proliferates in a harmonious bouquet of green fruit (Chasselas grape, raw pistachio, green almond).
This tea is a perfect accompaniment to desserts and gourmet treats such as brioche, mendiants, calissons…
