The Lord of Aged Tea from the island of Taiwan
Lao Chawan serenely keeps Taiwan's tea traditions as an impartial reflection in the mirror. Bushes of various varieties of oolongs growing on mountain tops give connoisseurs not only delicate, warm, floral aromas and tastes in slowly and beautifully opening leaves but also are able to surprise and even amaze - you just have to look at tea from a different angle to the tea-grower love.
The manufacturing techniques of the Lord of Aged Tea consist in regular roasting of the finished tea at intervals of 1-2 years, in the intervals between which the roasted oolong is carefully kept in a sealed container. Traditionally, oolong tea acquires the title of Prince of Aged Tea only after 10 years of storage and roasting.
Harvest: Spring, 2001.
"Lao" is translated from Chinese as "Old". This term is used in relation to old teas aged under special conditions for many years and even decades. As a rule, over time, the taste of such tea becomes softer, deeper and richer. Lao teas are credited with medicinal properties and "tea state" (or as it is called in China, Cha Qi), a special harmonizing effect.
Highly fermented oolong teas are medium fermented teas. As a result of the peculiarities of the tea bush variety and the complex production process, this tea has a very bright aroma and rich taste. This is a highland tea that has absorbed the beauty and strength of the places in which it grew. A real tea of the highest mastery that requires special treatment and attention. After going through a long and difficult fermentation process, this tea has a special healing and harmonizing effect. These are always complex tastes and aromas, always a clear change in taste with each new brew.• Strengthens the immune system
