The dry leaves are tightly rolled and have a natural, vivid green colors. The brew has great clarity and transparency with a very fresh yellow color. The open leaves and the buds are large. They have a reddish color on the edge. Lots of insect bites on buds and leaves are clear signs that this plantation doesn't use pesticides.
The dry leaves smell like fresh lavender, fresh flowers and mountain forest! We find the same fine scents in the brew. The feeling is natural, elegant and intense.
The taste of this tea is typical of Da Yu Ling. It's clean, sweet, fresh and has a very powerful Chaqi.
