A truly remarkable tea! The tea comes from a tea tree that's about 200 years old and is situated at an elevation of 1200 meters above sea level. The range of aromas and flavors from honey to sandalwood and mineral notes, creates a complex and multifaceted sensory experience.
The tea's deep and full-bodied nature, combined with its energy, suggests a tea of exceptional depth and vitality. It's deeply satisfying and reaching deep into the chest and heart, the emotional connection that tea can often evoke.
With reverence toward ancient trees and their wisdom, one can uncover a profound connection to nature and the passage of time. These trees stand as living witnesses to history, carrying within them the stories of generations and the essence of the land they've grown on. From their gnarled trunks to their resilient branches, they embody the resilience and beauty of the natural world.
Each cup of tea brewed from leaves nurtured by these ancient trees becomes a conduit to that wisdom. As you sip the infusion, you're tasting not just the flavors of the earth but also the accumulated energy and knowledge of the tree's long existence.
It's recommended to use very good quality filtered water, specifically reverse osmosis filtered water, for brewing this tea. Spring water is noted to suppress the fragrance of the tea, while tap water is discouraged for use in brewing.
