Old Tree Shui Xian
Harvest 5/5/2019 from my aunt's garden in the higher mountains in the banyan area. The farm is located in the hills above Chenduncun village (程墩村) at an elevation of 640 meters. The older trees have a greater depth of flavor.
Dry leaves have a classic yancha fragrance. The first sips are sweet and full of congwei (枞味) - the taste of the old trees. Flower fragrance with a nice woody flavor.
This tea is available also as a light roast as Light Roast Old Tree Shui Xian. It can make an interesting comparison, since both teas are from the exact same batch. We roast some lighter than the rest.
