From Bannacha

Harvested in January 2013 in some of the highest
natural tea gardens of Jingmai mountain. Tea grows
very slowly in winter, the result is a lot of small and furry buds, few stems and contrasted leaves. Low yields often give great results, and this tea confirms the rule.

Processed perfectly by Yubai, it brews a golden yellow liquor, which means a tea is not too red nor too green. Therefore, it is balanced between body and fragrance.

Closer to spring than Autumn tea, it features the typical Jingmai fragrance: flowers and honey. Almost no bitterness and a very mild astringency, the mouth feeling is very comfortable, and is followed after a few minutes some freshness in the throat. The Chaqi is relaxing, it is not an aggressive tea but it has a load of complexity.

Perfect for beginners or for an easygoing tea session.

This was the last tea I tried from my recent order from Bannacha. I somehow did not expect much from it. Man was I surprised! I brewed this and removed the gaiwan lid and I was blown away by the aroma. Just as beautiful as the aroma was the sweet liquor that brought a smile to my face. This is an absolutely gorgeous tea! I ordered samples of this and the Autumn 2012 Lao Man E, a 2012 Autumn Xiao Yang Chun, and a larger sample of the 2012 Gu Yun. These will all be purchased in cake form and I can recommend them all without hesitation.
