Chinese Palace Needle

£3.00

Like all tea rarities, the Palace or Ocean Green Needle is produced with utmost caution and care. Harvested in the Province of Hubei in mid-April, only the finest leaves and the buds are plucked, steamed, dried, sieved and re-selected again before packaging. Of particular importance are the differing temperatures used. The subsequent drying is at moderate temperature so as to conserve the pleasing colour and taste of the tea. 30gm
