A rare black tea, authentically prepared from 200-500 years old trees. The taste is intense, long-lasting, and filled with the complexity that demonstrates the meticulous time that went into this ancient forest.
Harvested by hand in Spring 2020
This is red tea at its utmost: premium quality leaves from ancient trees, entirely hand-processed to keep in as much of the flavors of century-old hidden trees of the forest. The various steps of preparation involve different skills and multiple days in the mountain. Each step allows the age of these leaves' history to fully express, in a dark red intensity, the rings of the tree's big trunk, alive, statuesque, and wise.
We recommend very short infusions, starting with a 5-second rinse, and proceeding to infuse in accordance to your personal taste. Its hearty, robust leaves can hold 10 or 12 infusions without any problem.
