Tea from the village Gan Dae, harvested in the fall of 2014 during the cold dew season, the best season to collect Tie Guan Yin. All stages of making this tea were done by hand: collecting, shaking and rolling the ball. But the main thing that distinguishes this tea from modern Tie Guan Yin is that the final and most important stage of drying was done according to the old technology, on coals, Like Wuyi Shan teas. This technology was used traditionally, until it was replaced by the fashion for a fragrant “green” taste, for which coals are not suitable. The efforts of several years to persuade our friends to make such tea have finally been with success and now they say that drink only it. Discreet aroma, but deep, “fat” taste, thick rich infusion and unexpectedly sweet aftertaste. In a word, everything for which connoisseurs loved this tea 20 years ago. Tradition is a tradition, so that, having changed again return to mainstream. Tea is primarily for those who strive to go to the origins.
