Origin: China, Guizhou Province, Fenggang County
Harvest Season: Mid-April, 2021 (pre-Rain)
With its subtropical climate, unpolluted clean air and high altitudes, Guizhou Province is ideal for growing high-quality green tea. The soil in the Guizhou Plateau is rich in zinc and selenium which contribute to a a higher level of anti-oxidants in the leaf. The favorable soil conditions and longer growing period in high altitudes allow Guizhou's green teas to absorb more nutrients and also offer richer flavors.
