A fantastic black tea from high up in Li Shan mountain, with a very smooth texture coupled with an incredible floral taste which lingers in the mouth.
The tea is quite light compared to typical black teas with a pleasant sweetness and not any malt or astringency.
A limited edition tea produced in very small quantities, I’ve ordered 1kg this year and probably will not be able to order any more until 2021 due to the limited seasonal nature.
- Very smooth texture
- Complex taste which evolves
- Floral quality with notes of citrus, fruit and nut which develop with subsequent steeps

Light brew yesterday, still a great 5 cups. 4th and 5th were weaker, but aroma going strong. I’ve just opened my last 50 grams of it, and am now starting to have diet addict freakout. I know this was limited, and weather permitting, I’m hopeful it might return. There’s a distinctly canola oil like vibe with the fruity qualities of the tea that I absolutely love, and it’s definitely my favorite black tea in my stash right now. I actually started looking into Green Terrace’s to hold me off and see how it compares, but they’re Paypal isn’t working. So I may have to reach out for help or be more responsible by finishing this slowly.
