Chungu save folks

It is said that a long time ago there was no tea in Xinyang. The locals, oppressed by local officials, had got "fatigue fever". Lots of people died.

A girl called Chungu decided to seek a kind of precious tree to cure the villagers. Chungu walked for 81 days, and then found seeds of the tea tree which can treat the illness. Soon, the tea tree grew up and cured them. From then on, many people planted tea trees. Thus tea gardens and tea hills came into being.

good flavour
I drink a lot of green tea and I've always had a soft spot for this one my tea. It's so mellow and easy to brew. A really good choice for people new to Green tea!! Sure, it's a little more expensive than other green teas, but when you drink it you'll see why, and it's worth it. My colleagues are buying this tea together with me. It's a great product. Thank you!

Smooth and nice flavor
I'm always in search of a green tea with a bit of naturally occurring olive flavor that I've sometimes found in teas from China, and this has that. It's a great tea, and I've been enjoying it in the mornings. brew correctly and you will have delightful tea. I brewed 2-3 times.
