This is what we call a luxurious tea. Teas grown at these extreme high elevations are rare, expensive and difficult to procure. Higher elevation does not however mean more intense aroma or more flavorful. It is actually more reserved, quiet and refined. This may not be the right tea for a beginner tea drinker, but will be extremely satisfying for the more sensitive. A fascinating tea that we are continuing to explore.
The depth of character, the subtlety, the dynamic sense of change, the clarity and the smoothness are unparalleled. It is nuanced tea, even delicate, but it packs underneath it's beautifully fine structure a real sense of power and movement that changes - not just infusion to infusion - but sip to sip and moment to moment. An absolute delight for a refined palate.
