One morning in September 2015 we woke up with a message from China: “今天开采百古树茶“, that is, we pick the leaves of the old tea trees today. That day we hourly received pictures of the process.
It is special puer tea, dried on ember, picked from around 400 years old trees. The technique gives an additional roasted flavour, also bring a bit milder taste. Even the dry leaves show nice notes of fire and whiskey. Quite strong, structured, however, due to the Autumn harvest, kind and smooth.
