Product code: CSTVI-273

Produced in Mucha near the capital of Taiwan, this tea has typically been cooked 60 hours before being aged for over 20 years. Its producer, Mr. Gao, who also prepares this tea in his harvest of the year, is highly skilled in these two transformation processes and his attention to detail gives an exceptional vintage.

The firings and ageing processes are involved in changing the color of the leaves and the liquor (reddish brown), as well as the creation of characteristic aromas.

Woody notes (bark), fruit (dried fruit) and roasted/toasted (tobacco, toast) alternate to a mineral and sweet finish.
