In the Fujian Province people say that in ancient times this tea was sent from heaven as a gift to the common people. These amazing tea bushes were for a long time under the protection of an evil black dragon, who did not allow anyone to approach them. But one day a brave young girl was able to outsmart him and take possession of the magical plant that was able to cure various diseases and at the same time had an amazing taste.
This tea consists only of tea buds. The best period for picking this tea is spring, the first harvest is especially valuable – because the delicate buds contain amazing strength. At this time, tea is not yet processed by any means and its purity is its main virtue. It is very difficult to catch the moment when the silver down completely covers the buds, but has not yet come under the influence of the environment. After a painstaking picking, the tea buds undergo a complex and long withering process. This is the main difference between this tea from other tea types – it does not undergo heat treatment, thereby preserving its original taste and aroma.
