A beautifully aged tea that comforts and rejuvenates.
Dry leaves: notes of sweet tobacco leaves, dried wild flowers, and date paste
Wet leaves after a rinse: notes of prune, vanilla and aromatic wood
Taste: The first sip was sweet, velvety, warm and comforting. The flavour combined plum, red jujube, exotic wood, sweet cinnamon and caramel. It relaxed and grounded me instantly. As I continued with more infusions, the floral notes (mountain flowers, scents in autumn apple orchard) became more apparent. I started to feel a sweet cooling sensation in the throat. With the lingering floral aromas and the rising warmth of the tea, I felt centred and rejuvenated.
