Like Gan Zao Ye, this experimental herbal-tisane is made from wild Laoshan-native Jujube trees, harvested on the mountain slopes and then allowed to oxidize in the sun before being finished using a technique inspired by Laoshan Black. These caffeine-free leaves are thinner than tea leaves, so they lose their moisture faster while oxidizing. This makes for a unique partially oxidized flavor with greener notes that shine through in later steepings.
'As they steep, the reddish dry leaves pop open almost as quickly as green Gan Zao Ye, yielding beautiful leaves that get a touch greener with each infusion. The first steepings are very, very malty with a light chocolate flavor, pudding sweetness and hints of violet. As the tea continues steeping, it gets a thick dried apple quality with cherry bark and palm sugar undertones'
