Leaf Analysis....

  • Type of tea bushes : Full china tea giving unity in the leaf and the infusion
  • Wet leaf is red & coppery.  100% unity in the colour.  The lighter wither (64%) gives the golden tone to the leaf : when the wither is lighter the tips have extra moisture which, when rolled enhances oxidation
