An extraordinary black tea. We were delighted to be able to purchase this tea, as the last time we only found this quality in 2016.
Wild red fruits, red grapes, and red velvet cake, all appear in the scent and liquor of the tea.
The wild arbor leaves have purplish colour and give an extraordinary rich complexity to the tea, with long, savoury aftertaste. Uplifting, warming, long lasting. In our experience the tea shows black tea characteristics until the 3.-4th steeping, than it turns into wild tree Puer taste. A beautiful journey.
