Grown in Anshi Fujian province the tea is picked in the spring at elevations over 3000 feet. The tea looks like small blue-green pebbles. This pebble form is a result of the tea leaves being glazed and coated with a thin layer of licorice sugar. When the ?pebbles? are infused the licorice sugar coating melts and the resulting brew is amber-colored and sweet. A unique tea. An Imperial favourite. Hand selected leaves with layers of orchid and mallow flowers create a rare pale green yellow tending to amber An exceptional tea.
