China - Pre-Chingming

The festival of Chingming (Qingming) is a 2,500 year old tradition in which people visit the burial sites of their ancestors to pay respect. It is significant in Chinese tea culture because it serves as a demarcation between a distinct pre-Chingming plucking period and the subsequent plucking period occurring after the festival date (usually around April 5). Pre-Chingming teas are prized for their delicacy and subtle, fresh nuances.

 1. ZKP2: Pre-Chingming Golden Black

A 2014 Pre-Chingming black tea from Yunnan province. The silky smooth flavor has notes of bittersweet cocoa, and a caramel/molasses sweetness with hints of cassia. With its malty thickness and deep, rich flavor, this selection is a real eye opener!
