It is one of the six colors of tea defined by the Chinese and is distinguished by minimal human intervention. Ultimate refinement, the varieties selected for its confection are dressed in a fine silvery white down. Could this be the origin of tea?

The picking of this tea takes place only in the spring and is done manually. The leaves are just withered and then dried. Covered in abundant gray-white down, these leaves give a clear apricot, floral infusion with notes of dry grass.
An organic tea is not a guarantee of flavor, it only certifies a "clean" method of cultivation (without fertilizer or chemical insecticide). Tea is a noble product. In order not to break the tea leaves, the preparations are made by hand in the production workshop of Montreuil.
François Cambell has been traveling the tea route since 1997 to select the best organic tea gardens where working methods respect people (fair trade). He travels to the places of production to select varieties of original and high quality teas.
