This was harvested from Feng Huang mountain in November.

Dry leaves have the aroma of licorice candy and smoked ham. The smoky sweetness fills the mouth similar to the aroma of a good Tung Ting, but without the flowers. A caramel aftertaste lingers. A creamy texture flows over the subsequent infusions, mingling with a slight dryness that remains on the tongue, although not unpleasantly so.

Bio

A tea geek (and also general geek) in Burlington, Vermont.

I’m drawn to the beauty of a steaming cup with snow falling outside. When I see a tea leaf, I see the long road and hundreds of hands that have brought it from the sun and soil to my pot.

I think that tea can be a way of life.
