A pure feeling of nature, nice fruityness, a balanced taste, old tea tree character… more notes later
The bings are pressed harder for better long term aging. I had a talk with VeiAn about this topic and he says that the cake will gradually be more loose. The example of it is the Yuna’s Heroes 2014 which is now not that rock hard to dismantle.
These tea leaves comes from a tiny valley with two very steep slopes, at the bottom there is flowing a mountain stream and at one upper part of the slopes are clutching old tea trees, the slope is so steep that is hard to climb. In the shade of the mountain with other trees growing these tea leaves make buds. Downhill are two old baracks like buildings, not much inhabited these days telling that there was a thriving tea factory producing tea for chinese market in the past. In the behind hills are left wild hidding tea trees but as I happened to know those are a state reserve forest and tea leaves can’t be plucked/harvested there.
