From Old Ways Tea

Good high mountain material with a classic charcoal roast. The farm is located in the hills above Chengduncun village (程墩村) at an elevation of 640 meters. The dry leaf has a rich tea fragrance. The gaiwan lid is fruity, and the soup a dark orange with old tree fragrance. This tea can start a little slow, but picks up speed and energy.

Note: Previous years we called this tea “premium rou gui”. I am changing the name to better describe the tea.

Gongfu!

It’s been a little while since I last had a really good Rougui and this one is hitting all the right notes. A sharp fruity sourness to the top of the sip, like tangy fruits or even roasted chicory, before being pulled down into a hug of heavy roast and minerality with the trademark warming cinnamon. The finish, especially as this tea session goes on, is slightly floral with sweet ripe stonefruit notes rising from the undertones and lingering on the palate after each sip. Mostly plum, a little nectarine. So nuanced, comforting, and delicious!
