Description from Mountain Stream Teas:

Made by an 80 year old tea master in Pinglin, this rare and slightly sweet black tea is earthy, unpolished and true. Considered the father of organic farming in Taiwan, his garden has been chemical free for many decades and the teas produced there can be sold out years in advance. This tea is a real treat and is a favorite among black tea drinkers for its strength, softness and depth. Great office tea as it stands up very, very well to western style brewing!


Recommend Brewing Style:

• 3-5g per 100ml
• ~90C water
• 30, 45, 60 then add 5-10 seconds steeps in gaiwan.
