The name tells its origin (Enshi) and quality (hairy needle, tender spring tea buds).
Enshi Hairy Needle is made from early spring tea buds, carefully processed with traditional 25 procedures! The tea appears neat, lively dark brown. It gives delightful fruity aroma. A pure white jade porcelain Gaiwan might be the best to prepare this black tea because its infusion colour is bright and golden, really pleasant for our eyes. The tea tastes smooth and mellow blended with honey sweetness.
