An excellent quality Gushu (Ancient or Old Tree) Forest Tea! This tea is from old trees growing between the vilages of Mahei & Da Qui Shu at an elevation between 1447m - 1503m in the Yiwu area. The trees are several hundred years old. This cake is a blend of a whole years harvest from this garden, producing a quality, great tasting tea. The leaves are long and bright, still with a fresh green hue. Good, clean storage giving a thick quality tea soup with a pleasing aroma. To taste, a rich and delicate flavour full with Yiwu character and finishing with a long lasting touch.
