Shui Xian Lao Cong

Harvested from mature tea plants with roots deeply embeded in the terroir of the Wuyi mountains in the Fujian region, this roasted black wulong consists of large, dark and twisted leaves. Its beautiful amber colored infusion offers vegetable aromas of grilled zucchini and nuts. The clear liquor offers rich woody and fruity (strawberry) notes in the mouth, enhanced by a delicate floral presence. A rounded and generous tea to its finish, evocative of barley sugar.
