No. 93, Feng Ming Ling Ye

After a year hiatus, it is back!  

An exceptional, full bodied zhu cha or pearl tea, grown at high elevation in Guizhou Province, this relatively unknown tea has all the flavor expected of a famous tea, but with none of the cost.   Savory and buttery, with notes of autumn squash, toasted sesame cracker and hints of nutmeg and spinach. 

Origin: Guizhou Province, China - 2015
