This Grand Cru comes from the Guria region in Georgia. The acidic soil in this terroir, which is naturally rich in potassium, provides ideal conditions for cultivating tea bushes. It is produced using the Kimin cultivar, which is extremely resistant to the cold.
A green tea with unknown origins, it has a lively and fruity aromatic bouquet sure to entice lovers of Chinese and Japanese teas.
