Dong Ding Competition Special Mention #8 | Collection Box

Product code: CSTAD-539

We are proud to offer you this lot that has received an Honourable Mention in at the annual Luku competition (Taiwan). This lot was ranked in the top 10 teas of 6000.

Its golden liqueur is sweet and full. It combines marvelously its sweet hints of honey and dried fruit (raisins), with gourmet notes of oats and almonds. The whole experience is supported by well-integrated tannins. This masterpiece builds towards a long finale where woody accents dominate.

A gem for the lucky few!
