There will be from 1. July aplied new rules for charging EU VAT rates that will be chosen according the billing country. The other (Non. EU) countries will get the product prices (inc. SK VAT) that are shown in the shop. The EU countries, if other than 20% VAT will have the adjustment made during the checking out process. This change is still in a testing stage so apologies and possibly report any weird calculations.

bitterness will hit you and its salty, mineral finish with earthy, woody notes, strong Qi activates in the forehead instantly, this tea taste is strong, whole body, each cell wakes up gradually, the mind is sharp and focused and the same time relaxed, ageing tones blended with bitterness, very strong fragrance in the empty cup, bitterness reminds me of bitter almonds or rather apricot pits
I must say that this tea is for me a very new experience maybe this is underlayed by the fact that tasting this tea after one year maturation is a real reveal, I would never say its one year old, I would rather guess from 5 to 7 years, I might say that the more jungle like tea is the more it is likely to ferment/oxidize, in terms of time and also level, also these teas when pressed the leaves stick together like a glue and such pressed cakes looks like hard pressed almost machine pressed, so far I’ve known that more darker leaves, even fresh one, the more deep forest they from but with this tea is extreme, this all just prove the fact that this tea comes form deep forest, from tea trees, pole trees that are 20-30 metres high and this is their first picking of tea leaves
This is an additional notes from my chinesse friend who sourced this tea:
Kongshan Yayun is a tall-pole ancient tea tree newly discovered in a primeval forest. The variety of these tea trees may be cultivated ones. But since they has always grown in the wild,they can also be classified as a wild-type drinkable old tree tea. Because it grows in the primeval forest and is rarely (or very long time ago) picked by people, its buds are smaller, shorter, and fewer. Also because it has been hardly picked by anyone, its leaves are darker green and even black. But its taste is great, and it has no bad effect on the human body.
Since I observe my body reactions to the tea I just realized reading these notes that they are true, my feelings after drinking this tea were that I felt simply great, like the whole body functioning as it should, I am now nearing my 50ties so moments when feeling as teenage are nice. Anyway I feel all healthy still.
Another note is that the cakes are in some parts hard like stone so be aware of this fact, hard not to broke leaves of this cake due to very high content of all those stuff I can’t even name.
Last warning, don’t buy a cake (more left for my old age), its really hard but a (at least) one time experience is highly recommended. Ill do the hard work for you.
