This tea is from a plant that is reportedly over 1,000 years old. Whether the plant is actually 1,000 years old, or 800 years old, we cannot be certain, but we can tell that the plant that produced these leaves is very old. The leaves look slightly purple. The flavor and feel of this tea is completely different with the feeling of a strong qi. Piney, resinous, crisp and clean like a lemon with green brightness and hints of smoke, grapefruit, and pine nuts.
