2009 Sun-Moon lake Wild 100 year tree hongcha 100g
This exquisite hongcha comes from Sun Moon Lake in Taiwan where it is grown on old trees (>100 years old). The leaves are hand picked, hand rolled and hand processed by an elderly gentleman with care and attention so rare these days. The quantities of this are very limited in each production. The flavour is excellent with enough character to prevent it falling into that bland sweetness often found in hongcha.
