Shu Lian Dong, Spring 2021: An all-around classic! This vintage is broad and elegant, floral, and reserved with layered woodsy notes and fruity aftertaste.
San Yang Feng, Spring 2018: Lao Cong, extremely tender and clear texture with very pronounced Cong Wei throughout
San Yang Feng, Spring 2017: Lao Cong, this award-winning tea has a full soft body, roasty floral notes, and candied aftertaste. *The label on this vintage is wrong, it says 2018 in one place*
