A remarkable, fresh green tea produced in the famous tea province of Yunnan. No other tea is comparable to this sparkling, pale green infusion, which offers unique and inimitable delights of taste and aroma. It is cultivated at high altitude, with long, silver, downy-tipped leaves (mao feng) firmly rolled lengthwise. This tea promotes health and has a mild euphoric effect.

REMEMBERING THE TEA KING

In the faraway land of China, the cradle of tea culture, there is a part of Yunnan known as Xishuangbanna [see-shuang-ban-nah] that lies practically on the border with Burma. It is here that the king of tea trees "Cha-Shu Wang" stands at a proud 100 feet in the heart of the jungle. "Cha-Shu Wang" is an honorable 1,700 years old and a holy Mecca for "tea pilgrims." An expedition from Dobrá Tea, cutting its way through the jungle, found the site in 1997 to pay homage to the king. In addition to unforgettable memories, we brought back a unique and delectable green tea from that journey.
