This tea is made of ancient traditional techniques. The key lies in the material selection and production process. The raw material is autumn tea, and fresh raw leaves picked 7 days before and after the “Cold Dew”, and the tea trees must be picked only once a year. Ensure that the leaves of the tea tree get adequate nutrition.
