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.

The sharp and slightly metallic attack slowly evolves towards a sweet finish with fine accents of berries, spices (anise) and camphor. A rare tea, deep and long lasting in taste, enhanced by subtle soothing effects.
