From JK Tea Shop

This nonpareil Huang Zhi Xiang is made from the 100 years old tea trees, which is the descendants of 400 hundred years old Song Zhong Huang Zhi Xiang tree.

Hand-picked one bud with two or three leaves, plus made by extremely skillful tea farmer, this tea possesses very deep & strong Chaqi. Delicate & sticky tea liquid without any bitterness or astringency; wild-gardenia aroma comes against your nose after brewing the tea. After 6-7 repeated infusion, the tea is still quite tightly-twisted; After 15 times of infusion, the aroma and taste is still quite strong.

All of our Honey orchid & yellow sprig Dancongs are high-roasted by the traditional Charcoal method; so these two new teas, their charcoal aroma will disappear after 2nd infusion; then comes out the lovely floral or Gardenia aroma.

Tips: for all high mountain Wudong Dancong, it has the honey aroma, but also wild-floral aroma as well.

This tea is pretty amazing. I have been brewing it and tasting it since last night and it has been smooth and delicate the whole time. The flavor has been lasting and it hasn’t been getting bitter or astringent.

Wow. This tea is like drinking a liquid nectar where tea’s astringency is an undertone, not sweetness. Definitely deserves its grade.
