This tea comes from Mộc Châu district, Son La province. Excellent climate, rich soil, and 1000+ meters high altitude create a special environment for growing high-quality tea. Original cultivars brought from Taiwan and grown here for a long time give the tea a special character and deep flavour. This tea is made by an experienced tea master, who adapted Taiwanese traditional techniques to a local condition and produces high-quality traditional-style wulongs that can be compared with famous Chinese and Taiwanese teas. Thanks to the traditional wulong processing technology the old-style roasting method, and 6 years long aging, this tea became my best finding during the 2019 season.
Initially, the tea leaves have some baked notes such as apple pie with cinnamon and much more. As soon as the tea is rinsed, the aroma opens up and notes of roasted sunflower seeds, halva, and even salty notes of seaweed come to the surface. The taste of the brew is soft, rich, and deep, with bakery and honey notes. The aroma cup will satisfy you with caramel, strawberries, orchid, and vanilla tones. The golden colour of the infusion beautifully plays with various shades throughout the tea ceremony. This tea is getting better each time I brew it in different presentations and each time participants appreciate this tea like never before.
