Da Ye ZhongTea Varietal
This tea is made from tiny spring buds from old growth tea trees and fermented for a clean and smooth flavor. Xingyang is proud that ten years of age on this tea will taste more like a twenty year pu’er because of the quality leaf material and slow meticulous fermentation process. The result is deep, herbaceous and cooling with a lingering aftertaste.
'We were surprised by the amount of medicinal spice in this tea. We got a ton of anise, licorice and camphor flavor. As the tea steeped out, the cooling quality continued to grow, accented by herbaceous rosemary and sweet lemon peel flavor. No matter how long we steeped this tea, we always got beautiful results.'
