In infusion flavours of bark and roasted coffee dominate the aromatic spectrum. Its liquor, clear and mineral, retains a certain vitality despite its years of dormancy. Buckwheat (honey) and butter caramel notes enhance the slightly spicy pastry aspect of this tea from the North West of Taiwan.

Infused, its graceful leaves emanate smooth aromas of wintergreen, malt and tobacco. Lightly mentholated and generously fruity with notes of prune and raisin, its liquor is round, full and silky. A perfect tea for those special mornings.
