Baojing Gold

保靖黄金茶

Selected from Ludong Mountain, sacred to the local Miao people, our Baojing Gold is named after its origin, Baojing County in Hunan province, and the gold leafed cultivar from which it is traditionally made. Picked in early spring, this green tea is expertly crafted by tea master Mr Long in his garden using organic principles. Hand-dried, it has a refreshing, umami-rich character and is highly prized at its origin, and rarely finds its way outside of China. Read how our Head of Tea, Tom, was able to source spring teas in lockdown.
