Add to my notebook

The Feng Huang Mountains of China produce a few wulongs from single tea trees.

The Milan Xiang Wudong Daan from a single 150 year old tree.  From the first seconds of steeping this wulong releases captivating fragrances and a real explosion of aromas. Scents of citruses (tangerine, grapefruit) mixed with warm traces of caramelized sugars from its light roasting over wood fire. Blended in its creamy texture are some more fruity notes (exotic, litchi, guava…) and sweet, silky finish. A tea with exceptional persistence, and lively brisk vitality.

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. 

Tai Ping Hou Kui Hou Keng | Collection Box

These long mature leaves undergo a unique transformation in their home of Hou Keng village. Easy to prepare, this tea has a full and balanced liquor, highlighted by a greasy silky texture. Dominated by gourmet vegetal notes, with refined floral nuances that add to its fascinating rusticity. Its finish is slightly mineral and evokes its mountainous forest origins leaving us with a calm soothing note. What else could one want?
