This tea was picked from gushu or ancient trees that are over 150 years old. This tea has the pleasant characteristic “cooling” effect of sheng from “Ice Island” Bing Dao.
This tea has a very good balance of strong cha qi, bitterness, mouthfeel and
lingering sweetness. It has retained its spring aroma as well. The age of the
trees has only added to the smoothness of this tea.
