The cup is buttery smooth and light with hints of melon and a vegetal whisper that leads to a clean finish.

This handsome tea was harvested at the end of April during Gu Yu, the 6th solar term. There is a custom in southern China that people pick tea on the day of Grain Rain. Drinking such a tea can remove heat from body, prevent bad luck and be good for eyes. So no matter what the weather is on this Day, people will go to Tea Mountains to pick some new tea and drink it. Why People Drink Tea on the Day of Gu Yu?  As the last solar term in spring, Gu Yu brings a marked increase in air humidity and rainfall, so the grains grow faster. In traditional Chinese medicine, moist environment may cause some discomfort.
