A fantastic black tea from high up in Li Shan mountain, with a very smooth texture coupled with an incredible floral taste which lingers in the mouth.
The tea is quite light compared to typical black teas with a pleasant sweetness and not any malt or astringency.
A limited edition tea produced in very small quantities, I've ordered 1kg this year and probably will not be able to order any more until 2021 due to the limited seasonal nature.
