This tea, which comes from 1200-1500 years old wild Tai tea trees, is the boldest of flavour, fragrance and nutrients. Famous for its crystal clear amber colour, its flavours slowly evolve from gentle orange blossom to caramelised honey, with smoky mountain wood undertones. 

Ideal tea for those who love complex, bold flavours or are in need of dense nutrients. A warming and comforting tea that can be brewed as an alternative to English breakfast/Western black tea.

    Warming And Comforting

    When I engage with this tea, my body feels the most comforting and sustaining warmth. The floral, yet cedar-like wood flavor notes impart the feeling of walking through an old growth forest. This feeling is enhanced if enjoyed when going through a walk in a park/outdoors. Truly, one of my favorite experiential teas.

    Amazing morning tea

    I normally enjoy red teas in the colder months and whenever it's hard to get the day started I turn to this tea. It has this sort of Cha qi that activates the waters in the mingmen, where i can feel the lower Damian started to warm and circulate. It's definitely a tea to sit with after a meal. As I am more sensitive to these energetics, I love how this tea helps warm and circulate throughout the body.
