CNNP / zhong cha 茶 is an acronym for China National Native Produce & Animal By-Products Import & Export company, the original state-owned enterprise established in 1951. It has managed all major tea factories, including Meng Hai, Xiaguan and Kunming. Most of them were privatized in 1980-1990. In a way, CNNP continues under the brand name China Tea Leaf Inc. and still uses the original red-green logo 中茶 – probably the longest used brand in the world of pu-erh.

The aroma of tea is sweet and fruity, floral, citrus and peach aromas. In more and more brewing processes, the color of the infusion changed from soft golden pink to amber. The taste is obviously fruity, sweet and refreshing. The aftertaste is strong honey with a gooseberry hue.
This tea can withstand many brews and is definitely one of the most unique teas in our collection at an affordable price, but it is also of high quality.
"Snow Falling on Jade-Green Pool" - a beautifully poetic name hides a high-quality green tea from the early spring harvest from Mount Meng Ding which was richly scented with the best autumn jasmine, even in a ratio of 5: 1 (5 kg of jasmine flowers were used per 1 kg of tea).
Jasmine flowers are also abundant in the tea itself (although they no longer add other aromas - they have an aesthetic effect and give meaning to the poetic name of the tea).
The tea is a distinctly jasmine-sweet fruit flavor with a rich aroma that lasts for many pours.
Qi Lan "Rare Orchid"-one of the few newer oolong teas from Wuyi Mountain.
The larger leaves are usually scattered and exude a sweet floral fragrance. The dark yellow tea soup has a strong, sweet floral aroma, ripe fruit aroma to honey aroma.
Orchids full of orchid fragrance, with strong aroma and aftertaste.
Da Hong Pao (Big Red Robe) - one of the best rock teas (yancha) straight from the cradle of all oolongs - Wu Yi Shan. Teas grow on the region's numerous rocky cliffs, which, thanks to the local climate and stony soil, acquire special features that are later deepened by traditional processing.
Due to its unique properties and taste, Da Hong Pao is often referred to as the 'King of Teas'. The color of the leaves is dark brown, often with a charcoal luster. The taste is balanced, the aroma is strong but still soft and pleasant and aftertaste long and sweet.
An excellent tea with a traditional but not very tempting name - "The smell of duck droppings". The tea itself has one of the most amazing aromas that Dan Cong type teas can offer - delicious and full at the same time, charming, reminiscent of rice flowers, smooth and very sweet with complex floral tones and a long-fading aftertaste.
