This tea come from small familly farm in Wuyi area and it was processed in small batches. Tea trees were only picked in spring.
The tea were picked from 50 years old tree from ZhuKe (竹窠) area in ZhenYan protected area.

A few months after the roasting process, the tea is ready for drinking now, but also can be stored for a long term!
Dry leaves have strong sweet smell, reminds me of winter and wood stove. This tea comes across with a soft, rounded mouthfeel, offers sweet sensations of dried figs, herbs and mineral notes.
Many of "Lao cong" (老枞) Shuixian in the market are not real Lao cong (old bushes). Most of them are Gao Cong - 40-60 years old trees. Real Lao cong shui xian from the protected area (ZhenYan) are rare and cost a lot.
