- whole and not crushed or broken.

- diffuses an exceptional smell.

- the price nevertheless remains a criterion, a PREMIUM tea has taste. To keep the quality and its flavor it is picked up by hand, far from mechanical processes.

- storage with undeniable effect.

- Beware of marketing, excessive marketing will have a major effect on the choice of tea quality. Marketing is expensive.
