A virgin forest is a piece of land that has never grown tealeaves or crops. Virgin tea is the first harvest on this land since its first reorganization for water and land conservation and establishment of irrigation facilities.
It takes three years to have the first harvest of tealeaves from virgin tea trees, which yield 1/20 of other mature tea trees.
Virgin tea is special in that the tea trees are fresh and vigorous, and so are its shoots. Virgin tealeaves are thicker and can produce tea that is more flavorful than others. Virgin tea is also special in that it is limited in quantity, supreme in quality, and thus much more expensive in price.
