Mengsong Nan Ben Old Trees

This Chinese white tea from 300 year old trees, is a special treat.

Very pleasant to drink, it has a dense flavour profile that is sweet and ripe with a long lasting after taste on the palate.

The leaves for this tea have been withered in the sun and in shade, and then steamed and hand-rolled into small 200g cakes. Looking at the cake you can see that not only young, fresh leaves, but also older, larger ones have been used.

The body-feeling is energising, intense and pleasant, it goes deep.

flavour profile: honey, floral notes, sweet, ripe
