This beautiful addition to our list of aged teas will please all lovers of rustic and traditional teas. Its large autumn leaves, picked a year after budding, come from ancient trees perched on the slopes of Shi Shan Mountain. Its liquor has a smooth and sweet texture enhanced by notes of camphor, ripe fruit and tobacco. Accents of spices and firewood, typical of ancient cultures, support a light and generous finish.

This small cup comes with a lid and saucer and is used especially for infusing large leaf teas. The leaves are infused directly and the lid holds them back when the tea is ready to pour. This allows the leaves to be saved for multiple infusions, thus concentrating the flavours and aromas for each cup.
