From Tea Gallery

One of our favorite teas at any age, this tea’s seen a good ten years (possibly more) since it’s harvest. The spicy aroma is softer than it was even a few years ago but the flavor is richer and smoother. We still get the plummy notes and there’s an exotic spice that captures our fancy. The earthy profile isn’t for the frivolous and we must wait for the sweet, citrus finish to see the lighter side of the warrior monk. The cha-qi relaxes and puts us in a contemplative mood. A rich and mellow tea for those who make time instead of waiting for it. Go ahead, take a sip and think deep thoughts.

Exquisite . . .

It’s tea like this that makes me want to drop the ratings of almost everything else but I do use the little smileys bar as an indicator. A smile is a smile.

However, there is definitely an echelon above the rest that exists and this belongs in it. I’m left wordless. Serious, serious tea.

Much depth, structure and a profound calming quality. The flavor just goes on for miles and the mouthfeel is rich and soft.

when this is near spent i have been adding some heavily roasted tung ting to the gaiwan which is great on its own but the combination allows for an element of complexity. anything to stretch the flavor of this tea. it works.
