Add to my notebook

Grown without pesticide around Lingtou village in northern Guangdong, this artisanal Yin Hua Xiang is of a rare gustative quality.

Its name translates to “honeysuckle fragrance”, a label easily understood once the leaves are steeped. Less oxidized and still greener than most roasted wulongs, theYin Hua Xiang carries a bright floral fragrance through its tasty aromas. Notes of honey, grains, almonds and apricots all blend in a rich and creamy texture, leaving behind a sweet and slightly dry finish. To steep and resteep many times.

Lingtou Yuan Wei Dancong

A classic black wulong from Guangdong, both very suave and exotic. This tea comes from a less exploited side of the Dan Cong Mountains where crops are grown without chemicals. Its lively and fruity liquor (guava and honeydew melon) displays intense honey and floral fragrances. Powerful in the mouth, vegetal and woody notes are supported by generous tannins. Produced from thirty years old plants, this deep and well balanced tea offers a lot of infusions. Its finish is long, true to its name (meaning "taste of origin"), and worthy of exceptional teas.
