This Grand Cru is made in the Wuliang mountain, Yunnan Province. It is harvested at 1,900 metres above sea level from a century-old tea plant variety known as Lao Cong in Chinese. This Mao Cha is produced by a talented farmer, Mr. Zhang.

A Grand Cru with fresh and powerful vegetal, mineral and fruity fragrances. Its silky texture develops a fine astringency to give the flavours a long finish.

Grands Crus: savour the exceptional

Rare and ephemeral, teas identified as Grands Crus by Palais des Thés are the result of alchemy between a tea plant variety, its terroir and the talent of an artisan grower.
