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 in the Summer, I ordered an initial kilogram and was luckily was able to get another kilogram in.
