Description: This tea is produced on Jiu Hua Mountain, one of the four sacred Buddhist peaks in China. Legend has it that a solitary hermit, in ill health due to the rigors of meditation, was restored to health after imbibing tea made from indigenous leaves he found at the site. Crafted from a classic "two leaves and a bud" fine plucking, this leaf produces a delightful cup with a surprisingly full mouth feel and sweet floral nuances. The finish has a light, cleansing astringency.

"Smooth, clean, flavors of butter lettuce with a touch of honey or some light sweet flower. Wouldn't call it "brothy", but I agree with "full mouth feel". Very nice if you like cleaner, delicate green teas."
