This is a delicious tea that I really recommend brewing gongfu style. There’s a definite olive like taste to it, particularly in later brewings. It’s sweet, not at all astringent, and a few grams make many great brews. The only thing off-putting about this tea is the steep price tag. I think that it’s worth it, but I can understand if people prefer to buy other Yunnan teas.

wild craft and personal connections are deeply important for the preservation of the biodiversity and tea culture of Yunnan and to all of China…the price offers freedom to the farmers to live a reasonable and healthy life and with tea demand going up world wide we in the west need to learn how to adjust instead of driving markets into subjugating and exploiting land and cultures to support our habits

Bio

An Israeli computer programmer with a passion for tea (mostly bought in yearly shopping sprees in the UK), particularly black, oolong and white. I don’t generally enjoy flavoured teas or herbal infusions, but if a tea sounds interesting and smells nice I’ll most definitely try it. I drink several cups of tea a day, usually one or two in the morning, another one after lunch and one or two in the evening. My favourite tea so far is Lao Cong Zi Ya from Norbu Tea, but I’m constantly trying new teas. Only in the past year have I branched into Pu’erh and non-roasted oolongs. Finding good tea in Israel is difficult, so I import most of my teas from yearly visits to London, or from online retailers. If you see something in my cupboard that sparks your interest and you would like to swap with me, then please message me. I’m almost always up for a swap.
