What is Chigan?
A high-end variety in Lapsang Souchong black tea produced at Tongmuguan in Wuyi Mountain.
Before the development of Jin Junmei, if you want high-end Lapsang Souchong, you would mention Chigan.
Chi Gan is usually divided into small Chigan, big Chigan, and old Chigan. The distinguishing criterion is the picking time and the tenderness of the picking. Small Chi gan is made with one bud and two leaves, while Big Chigan is made with one bud and three leaves. Old Chigan is thicker and older.
Chigan is actually similar to Junmei Hong, but slightly weaker than Junmei Hong in quality. If you want a more affordable Junmei Hong, you can choose it.
