Add to my notebook

Plucked by hand and aged since 2004 by successive charcoal roasting, this high mountain tea offers an infusion with glossy black leaves and warm fragrances.

Its liquor is rounded, velvety and deploys a broad range of aromatic nuances, with accents through woods and vanilla to notes of iodine (seaweed) and empyreumatics (coffee, caramel).

The finish is gentle and deep.
