They strived and suffered, and they became the best-quality leaves: just like a flower blooming against all adversities, these leaves will disclose the strength of our Ancient Tea Trees with each infusion.

The year 2020 has been particularly dry, and this shortage of water caused a slowdown in the trees' growth. However, the higher level of liquid sugar concentrated in the leaves provides with an amazing aroma, with a greater complexity.

The freshness of the leaves is overwhelming, and the precious floral bouquet typical of its aftertaste is not long in coming, together with a surprising minerality. After realizing the great aging potential of these leaves, we decided to press them by stone, to ensure the best conservation for the years to come.

Harvested in Spring 2020.
