The utmost expression of our Ancient Tea Trees is enclosed in these precious cakes, carefully stone-pressed to ensure the best storage and aging.
These rare leaves come exclusively from the 11 oldest trees of Lunan mountain, and they are our most precious gem, in a special 100 gr. format. The purity of this harvest can immediately be perceived by gently opening the delicate paper wrapping, but the real sensorial journey comes from sipping the multiple infusions, and admiring the golden shimmer of the liquor.
With each new infusion, an overwhelming flower fragrance fills the air, and all senses are swayed by the freshness of the first sips, immediately followed by a sweet aftertaste. The single tree cake is the most prized collector's format, and it's the perfect choice for storing the precious Ancient Tree leaves and savour the taste of time passing.
