Many of you have been requesting when will this tea return to our catalogue… well your patience will be well-rewarded with this Lot 946! Reminiscent of Lot 733 we produced together in 2018, we were more than thrilled when a grower-friend in Shanlinxi offered to sell us his summer crop of Qing Xin leaves. Like all high-mountain growers, his true strength as a producer is with fragrant oolongs. Not all high mountain producers have the ability, or the equipment, to make good black tea. We, on the other hand, have just the thing. Combining the strengths of both parties, we brought fresh picked leaves in the comfort of our air-conditioned vehicle (the trick not to damage the leaves) down the mountain to our family workshop for processing. The result made from the first fine picking with plenty of buds is simply divine! As we write this, the tea was just finished today and we felt compelled to make it available right away rather than brag about it. If you indulge in the pleasures of high-mountian oolongs, you must try this tea. You will experience the same expansive liveliness where tangy stone fruit notes (peach, cherry) will dominate with hints of fresh vanilla and wintergreen freshness. The body is suave with very supple and silky tannins but what surprises is the most pleasant long aftertaste that simply lures you to not stop drinking it! This is a great gongfu tea as well and shows great promise for ageing. Needless to say we are quite proud of the result and are sure all of the fans of Lot 743 will not be disappointed.

Thank you Sil for sharing! I made a cozy mug of this to go with my chocolate chip pancake breakfast. This complimented the breakfast well since it also has milk chocolate notes. One sip even gave me hot chocolate vibes. But on top of that it’s also malty and caramel and bready and delightful. Maybe even a touch of cinnamon. Am I imagining that last thing? Maybe. Probably. Who cares, I’m happy.
