Winter Landscape Green Tea Description:
This green tea from the Hunan province of China is made today the same way it was hundreds of years ago. Only the top buds of the early Spring flush are plucked, dried and skillfully rolled by hand. This beautiful tea carries notes of grass, wheat and light honey. The green and silver swirls of Winter Landscape remind us of the swirls in Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh which helped inspire the name of this tea.
