Description

Keemun black tea from Anhui province is one of the most famous Chinese black teas. However, just a few people know that they made only green teas until the late years of the XIX. century. When we were on a teahunter trip in the region, we fell in love with the green teas from the Lao Zhu Ye Zhong variety. So we are introducing two amazing green teas from Qimen now.

They harvested the Keemun Wild Maofeng tea in the early spring, two weeks earlier than our other Keemun green tea. This plantation lay on a higher altitude, like 1000 m. We can make smooth and calm tea from these amazing, tiny leaves. The feeling comes slowly and peacefully, like when the haze goes up. Our word is clearing.

Tasting notes:
Steamed gaiwan: perfume, flowers, a bit of sandalwood, a bit of smokiness
Tastes, feeling: We found the feelings easier detectable than the tastes. Calmness comes first, and we have a feeling like our skin becomes smoother. We feel like after a Sunday power nap. Ethereal, smooth tastes, acacia flower, fresh green notes. We got rounded airy notes when we use the gaiwan without the lid.
