From Postcard Teas

This is made from tea trees over 100 years old growing near Gua Dun village in Tong Mu area of Wu Yi. This area was the origin of the first black teas imported to Europe in the 17th century and the tea that made the English fall in love with the beverage. This rich tea with a flavor often said to be like dried Longan fruit is produced in tiny quantities by Master Xu’s colleague Mr Xiang who lives in the Unesco protected mountain area.

This is wonderfully complex in a mysterious way. Very likely I lack the ability to distinguish flavors, but I kept coming up with… paper. Paper in an old library that has picked up many qualities, leather binding, tobacco, spices and, of course, the wood from which it was made.
It is an elegant, aristocratic medium bodied tea.

I would recommend this in the tin, as it comes shipped in a padded envelope that could get squished. Mine fared well, but I will get my teas from them in a tin after this. It’s worth it.
