Consistency is a definite quality when it comes to well-crafted high mountain teas. It says a lot about the skill of the maker as well as the care he puts in nurturing a healthy garden. It is always a pleasure to go back to this garden since we’re are invited to go up right from day one of any new production season. After going up 4 consecutive days, we’ve chosen, as we tend to always do, the second day’s production. It is as if the producer needs the first day to calibrate his technique and nails it on the second day. The clearly defined balsam notes that make Longfengxia so particularly appealing to the palate and nose are definitely there! Many say that the surrounding fir tree forest that encircles the tea gardens have something to do in conveying this pure evergreen feeling in the cup. The marvellous yellow-gold colour of the liqueur already announces that we are in for a treat! Then, the wild and flowery aroma enthrals you to take a sip and experience a full bodied, thick yet smooth liqueur where crisp balsamic notes with a hint of sweetness linger on and on. This tea is very generous, in the cup and in the number of infusions one can extract from these beautifully crafted leaves. This winter Lot 471 is high up there with all the best ones we’ve had from this garden. A true delight!
