Commercial Description

(RateTea Translation) A unique rarity from Yunnan Province in China. This tea is harvested in later winter or early spring, only from ancient wild tea plants. It is only harvested once a year. It has a very soft and round flavor, with a slightly sweet note of fruit in the finish. The plucking consists of the top shoots (orange pekoe) with soft hairs. A delight to the eye, and of course, also the palate. Limited supply.

Half-litre pot at home. Pours clear and nearly colourless, with just a faint touch of pale straw, with no sediment. Mild aroma of white tea with barely discernible hints of some herbal spice. Delicate flavour of white tea, with mild floral and herbal notes. Smooth palate, with bitterish hints. The second cup has more colour, some pale straw, and a more pronounced flavour. A well-balanced and very tender tea, its delicate nature bespeaking its high quality. Relaxing and very much enjoyable. Predictably, this pleasure is certainly not cheap (85 DKK per 100 g), but, well, quality costs in all matters.
