Living Tea

Harvest Moon - Kai Yen Yiwu Mtn. 1999 - 1 oz

A full-bodied, deep, strong tea with the essential characteristics of Yiwu Mountain leaves. Flavors of light honey-pollen, caramelized apple, smoked cedarwood and autumnal spices.  Aroma of cloves and stewed Autumn fruits that intimates the warming, strongly moving Qi. The powerful Qi seems to open the heart, circulating and harmonizing fresh Qi throughout the body to break up stagnation. The name Harvest Moon refers to the alert calm awareness that one might experience around a full moon, captured in the after-effect of this tea. This stunning tea has passed through the awkward stage of mid-aged Puerh and entered a wonderful level of maturity that will only improve with time.  The perfect afternoon tea, especially during Autumn and Winter, facilitating wintertide qualities of quietude and reflection while still being opening and moving.
