rich, slightly 'barrique' taste of oak barrels as in wine, balanced bitterness, smooth and strong finish, for the shorter steeping it gives many rich infusions, after second brew the aftertaste is pleasantly ‘smacking’, sorry for the term, but it rarely happens to me, that after black teas has a tut for a while and enjoy its aftertaste

0.0 stars 0 reviews

This is very good quality Yunnan green tea, pick one bud with one leaf and one bud with two leaves in late March and careful rolling to "dragon pearls" ! Jasmine Dragon Pearl is flavored with original fresh Jasmine flowers( 茉莉花). The production time must wait until late May or early June, when Jasmine flowers bloom in Guangxi province. The making process is very lengthy and difficult but the original jasmine tea without synthetic essence is very pleasant ! Tea liquor is light yellow, smooth,...

2012 Myanmar - Beyond The Small Mengsong Mountain Gushu Xiao Bing 200g

2012 Myanmar - Beyond The Small Mengsong Mountain Gushu Xiao Bing 200g
4.5 stars 1 review

The raw materials of this cake came from villages in Myanmar, its north border on small Mengsong mountain. Tea trees are about three hundreds years old and remain unmanaged. The natives living in isolated areas where transportation is difficult, they carry the tea on the backs and walk to the border. The tea is not expensive but does not come by easily.

Quotes

„When examining maocha, the colour of gu shu leaves tend to be more highly contrasted with a bright white hairy bud/tip surrounded by a grey, open leaf wrapper, with dark black stem & leaves. By comparison, tai di cha is almost all black, due to the use of fertilizer, the leaves grow quickly and the buds have less white hairs.“
