Add to my notebook

Here is a great production not to be missed, originating in the Wuyi mountains national park, one of the best terroirs for tea production due to the quality of its volcanic soils and its most favorable warm and humid microclimate. Infusion of its beautiful leaves, transformed by the hands of masters, offers intoxicating perfumes of sweet ripe strawberries and flowers. Its brilliant liquor is creamy and displays its woody and roasted accents with finesse, leaving room for precious nuances of sweet spices (nutmeg, cinnamon) and brown sugar. Generous and balanced, could make a nice gift!
