Ying Kee Tea House is an old tea company with 130+ years of history and a good reputation in the market. By working with high-quality tea material, and processing done by experienced tea masters, Ying Kee successfully achieved the Hong Kong Top Brand Mark, as well as other awards. Located in Hong Kong, they specialise in pu'er and hei cha, as well as other types of tea. In the AN SHIM TEA Collection, you can find a few different products from their range, as well as this amazing sheng tuo cha. Harvested in 2006, made from the Lincang area's tea material, this tea is an astonishing semi-aged sheng pu'er.
The dry tea leaves have a light, sweet aroma with notes of wood and honey. After rinsing, the aroma develops into herbal, citrusy, and spicy notes. The taste is deep, soft, and multifaceted with hints of dried fruits, wood, and citrus. Mineral texture with a 'Hui gan' sensation: after the initial sweetness follows bitterness. This tea has a strong, yet noble Cha Qi (Energy). This is a very good example of traditional Hong Kong storage.
