Story:
Every spring 小許 (xiǎo xǔ) and his father go to Jingmai Shan to oversee harvest/ puer production at two ancient tree groves. First flush from well-loved trees, never over-picked.

Impressions:
More fragrant than the Secret Garden, Jr., which has a stronger Qi. The true ancient tree character of this tea is evident in the Qi and the taste, but especially in the leaves' strong lingering scent. See how many minutes the smell in the bottom of your teacup remains for. And note the strength of the bag smell wherever it's stored.

Very mild bitterness, cream, fruit, orchid
