I had this tea for the first time when I was living in Taiwan and visiting with the tea master from whom I procured it. I knew upon the first whiff of the dry leaves that it was special and unique. It stands alone in the oolong family of teas proudly with its smokey sweetness and very smooth finish. The energy of this tea is incredible, very uplifting and calming at the same time. An excellent Tibettan tea for sure!
This is a rare Tibbetan tea, hand picked by Buddhist monks on the Tibbetan plateau. Only 5kg of this tea are harvested and transported out of Tibet per year making it very rare. It’s aromas are reminiscent of smoked honey with a hint of fruit and the flavour pure, sweet and lasting. It is certainly unique when compared to any other tea I’ve tasted.
