Baojing Gold Green Tea

保靖黄金茶

The Origin Story

Selected from Ludong Mountain, sacred to the local Miao people, our Baojing Gold is named after its place of 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 this year.

China - Hunan

The climate in Western Hunan is subtropical and tea is grown in hilly terrain. Spring brings the first of the season’s teas, made from the delicate buds that the bushes produce after their winter dormancy. Several local cultivars are grown here. Baojing is famous for its gold or yellow leaved cultivar that imparts a high amino acid content to the tea.
