Background Description

This tea grows in the remote mountains near Huang Mountain, where the tea pickers walk about two hours to reach the rocky tea plantation. The tea has a unique production process where the leaves are hand fried continuously for 20 hours, with both hands scrolling the tea. This gives it its unique shape, described as gunpowder”. Prime minister Zhou used this tea to host President Nixon in 1970’s.
