Qiandao, Zhejiang, China

At the Yunding Dragon Well Estates, seasoned tea-crafters hand-press tea leaves against hot woks into its signature spear-like form. This tradition has been handed down from generations to the extent where the women in the precinct are said to be born with iron palms.

The estates occupy up to 1000m in height of terraced plantations along the hills that surround Qiandao (Thousand Island) Lake. This is an autumn flush, with a heartier and more intense flavour than the spring-picked cousin.

Dry leaves: green flat spear-like leaves
Liquor: jade colour
Taste: roasted corn, chesnuts
Process: withered, shaped, wok-fired
