We ordered this tea just after first days of winter crop of 2020.

It was very nice but our experience let us think it’s good to wait, because oxidized teas can beautifully change during first months of storage.

After more than year tea evolved into impressive oolong with amazingly rich taste profile. It smell like an orchard during the last days of summer. You will find here aromas of overripe plums and mirabelles lying on the warm dried grass. Also.. honey, roasted grains and beautiful nuances of wild herbs and exotic fruits (mango, passion fruit).

Suggested brewing method: Yixing clay teapot or gaiwan of low capacity. First, you should pre-heat empty teapot/gaiwan and tea cups with boiling water. When the teapot is warmed, then you put the tea leaves in. After smelling hot and dry leaves in the pot, gently pour the boiling water to the pot.  First infusion should be very short- not more than 30-40 second. After first infusion, when leaves are already opened, you can brew it around 20-30 sec.for second time.  We suggest to increase brewing time for 5-10 seconds in each next brewing.
