Due to the high altitude of Tongmuguan, it is surrounded by clouds and fog all year round, with abundant rainfall and warm and humid climate. Therefore, the tea picking time of Tongmu is relatively late, especially the picking time of the old bush LapsangSouchong in Tongmuguan is mostly around the middle of May.Most of the Old bush LapsangSouchong in Tongmuguan is from Qizhong cultivar which does not have a high aroma. However, due to the older trees and good ecological environment, most of the tea shows the characteristics of full taste, heavy woody taste and endurable .
we supply old bush Lapsangsouchong from guadun挂墩 village for several years. This spring ,we bought some fresh leaves from the Ma su village and to do the processing .Masu, a mountain field with the highest altitude in Tongmu,
Ma Su's tea is sweet in the mouth, and there will be a wonderful slight bitterness in the throat, with rhyme in the bitterness, and the rhyme in the throat will be cool after bitterness, which is called "遁喉dun hou". This "bitterness" is a bit like the bitterness after drinking traditional Chinese herbal medicines. This "pleasent bitterness" is unique to Masu Mountain Field.
The tea has a very obvious fragrance of flowers and honey. At the same time, it has obvious mountain charm unique to Masu Mountain Farm. The sweetness is fast, and the tip of the tongue and throat still feel a little cold after drinking. The sweetness of the tea is the same as that of cool sugarcane water. It is the perfect combination of good raw materials and good craftsmanship. It is a tea I like very much.
If you want to experience the thick tea soup and strong tea energy in Wuyi black tea, you can try this tea.
