This Green Needles micro-lot is made from a localized Hubei cultivar called Quntizhong, an heirloom variety prized in this area since the mid-1700's. The rocky gardens of Xuan'En are famous for their picturesque plantings of Quntizhong. This tea offers a rich density and deep sweetness that develops through the elaborate firing, needle-shaping, and oven-baking process.
