Grown from trees over 200 years old in the Yunnan Province, the flavor and aroma profile of this beauty is of violets and plums with a sweetness reminiscent of agave nectar. Even just in dry leaf form, the aroma of the leaves is simply spectacular. It leaps out of the bag! Made from a single spring plucking, this exquisite tea is a considered a purple black tea due to the type of wild growing tea tree that is harvested for the tea.
This makes a wonderful special occasion tea as well as it is a great tea to age for a while. The flavors only get deeper and smoother if it is stored well.
