Now, this is a great tea in almost every aspect. It looks stunning, with the long wiry leaves and golden tips. The dry leaves have a complex fragrance: flowers, honey, pepper, peach, apricot. And it tastes great too, with honeyed sweetness, flowers and something that I can describe only as dust of centuries. The dust that accumulates on old books that assumes the smell of the past, of the things that happened long, long time ago before your time.
It is just a perfect evocative tea for a special kind of mood: remembrance, contemplation, introspection. Everybody needs it once in a while.
Flavors: Apricot, Dust, Flowers, Honey, Peach
