Add to my notebook

Amateurs of exceptional tea, here is one of three recent batches coming to us from the annual Bai Hao competition in Taiwan. This one, nominated 2 flowers, as it is the case for about 20 to 25% of the 2000 lots judged, presents beautiful leaves adorned with sumptuous buds. Once infused, they display seductive scents of flowers (orange blossom) and pastries, charging the air with their aromatic power. Its succulent liquor, honeyed and woody, boasts soft resins (cedar), spices (nutmeg) and acidic fruit notes, evoking watermelon in its finale. Like quality teas, this one offers multiple deep and dynamic infusions.

To learn more about the selection process, see the article devoted to it in our tea tasters blog.

Shui Xian Lao Cong M.Liu | Collection Box

Here is a great production not to be missed, originating in the Wuyi mountains national park, one of the best terroirs for tea production due to the quality of its volcanic soils and its most favorable warm and humid microclimate. Infusion of its beautiful leaves, transformed by the hands of masters, offers intoxicating perfumes of sweet ripe strawberries and flowers. Its brilliant liquor is creamy and displays its woody and roasted accents with finesse, leaving room for precious nuances of sweet spices (nutmeg, cinnamon) and brown sugar. Generous and balanced, could make a nice gift!
