Appearance/Taste: Robust with deep bittersweet notes, this tea will transport you to a different time and place. A thick warming mouthfeel that is long lasting, mellowing out over the course of too many steeps to count. a rare jewel for those who like something different. Exquisite beyond words. 20 years old and only gets better with age.
Produced in the An Hui Province in 1996 and kept there until 2005. Transported to Guangdong Province where it has been kept under well-controlled, dry, clean environment until 2016, producing a clean rich taste with excellent "cha qi." A very hard find and like a very fine cognac.
