Aroma/Color/Taste:  This wild grown dark tea is smooth, rich and thick with a sweet nut licorice long lasting taste and earthy scent. The color is a deep reddish brown and deepens with each infusion.

Because this tea has been aging since 2006, its taste carries the intensity from its age, heightening the smoothness, richness, thickness and lingering aftertaste.

This is a treasure. From tea trees growing wild for over 100 years high in the mountains in very rich soil. This gives this tea its pronounced richness and depth of taste.

In China this golden flower tea is rated higher than puerh teas. It takes its name from the yellow speckles of beneficial bacteria that present itself through fermentation.

Location: High in the mountains amongst the streams where the sunshine is short with year round mist and fertile soil. Liupao Village, Wuzhou City, Guangxi Province in southern China.

Made by:  Tea Master and owner, Su Shumei

 

Brews & Steeping:  Bring the water to a rolling boil.  Wait for the bubbling water to settle.  Pour off the first infusion to open the leaves.  For first drink, infuse for 3 seconds, pour and enjoy.  This tea can make 10-15 infusions.  Increase steep time only slightly longer as you reach the final infusions.  You'll know by the color and taste of the tea, when it has been exhausted.  We recommend using a small thick clay teapot and spring or filtered water.  Fill about 1/3 of your teapot or gaiwan with the leaves.
