Beginning with fresh green tea, the initial step involves wok-frying to arrest oxidation, followed by rolling, wilting, and another round of drying. In the last phase of production, the tea is expertly pressed into the distinctive "Song Zhen" (Pine Needles) shape as preferred by the locals.
Yunnan Pine Needles yield a delightful green tea experience, characterized by hints of umami, the essence of fresh green grass, and a subtle nutty undertone. The captivating aroma precedes a luxuriously buttery texture, leaving behind a delicate, lingering sweetness on the palate that's simply irresistible.
