This tea is crafted exclusively from leaves of Gushu (ancient trees) located in NA KA village, Meng Song town, in the northern part of Meng Hai county, as highlighted in red below.
This offering is not a blend but a pure expression of the tea, capturing the essence of this season’s harvest.
It features a strong Cha Qi and a well-balanced tea flavor. A notable honey-like fragrance lingers in the cold cup, quite pronounced.
The Hui Gan (sweetness from the aftertaste) emerges swiftly and with intensity.
The flavor of the tea persists long in the mouth and reaches deep into the throat.
I’m a long term customer of King Tea Mall. As always John provided excellent customer service, and great tea! :)

Pretty good example of what Na Ka region sheng tastes like. It's strong, bitter, and powerful without being harsh, though I think this is a good tea to age, not drink now. Starts off bitter, almost medicinal, and possesses depth and lasting huigan throughout. The bitterness quickly switches to slight sweetness in the mouth, but overall, I'd say that the bitterness is very noticeable throughout and coats the mouth. I liked this one a lot, the bitterness stands out but the tea remains complex and enjoyable. Would be really interesting to see how this one ages.
