A special Luk On tea, ageing in the presence of a range of Chinese herbs according to the recipe of Li Ching-Yuen, which give the tea its specific properties in connection not only with the beneficial gastrointestinal effects we expect from this tea. The tea produces a rich, dark, powerful infusion with an earthy aroma and taste with coffee sub-tones, all wrapped in a very refined sweet floral aroma.
Excellent highest category Luk On, which has undergone a long process of ageing. Balanced climatic conditions are essential for the quality and taste of ageing teas, and these conditions change little during this process. The climate of the Chinese province of An Hui, from where this tea originates, is determined amongst other matters mainly by the existence of the basin of two great rivers, the Yangtze and Huaihe. The province is characterised by its extensive plains in the north and its high mountains in the south. This tea offers a typical raw, earthy aroma and taste, with refined coffee sub-tones. The infusion is brownish-black, dense and very aromatic. With regard to its gastrointestinal properties it is an ideal tea for drinking after meals.
