This Wuyi tea is lighter roasted bringing out a rare complexity to each and every infusion.

It comes from 20 year old tea trees grown at the height of 300-400 M in elevation.

Shiru is limited to only a 30Kg Spring Harvest from our producers, and it routinely sells out before the next season has become available. Like our other offerings it is hand harvested and processed in traditional manner. This tea varietal only has around half an acre of space in the garden.

Creamy hazelnut like quality with subtle mineral notes leaving behind a woodsy sweetness. There is a calming quality to the energy this tea provides allowing one to relax and enjoy the vast flavor found in the brew.

    Aroma: Nice well balanced thick smoky atmosphere with a very delicious old red wine barrel woodsy scent plus this aged fine sourly note to it. First starting with a strong mix of charcoal and major notes of dried figs and a hint of raisins – Then intensely sweet like a fine thick handmade strawberry raspberry jam.

    Taste: Unbelievably tasty! Such a well composed and with care and knowledge created profile – just amazing! Very sweet nutty like hazelnut creme plus a fine hint of chocolate. Sweet like thick sweet strawberry lemon syrup and cherry candies. You might also discover some kind of a fresh baked bread structure like a dark walnut bread. Within the later unfolding of those sweeter aspects it also shows a licorice touch to it. The roasted level is medium – very well balanced and placed like if it’s melting perfectly together with all those other mouth watering aspects. With the second steep those beery gum / jam aspects gaining more and more within their importance ~ Strawberry jam with a hint of bourbon vanilla. Later onward this fellow tend more and more into the confectionary bakery direction with sweet dark sugary note, sweet baked bread, vanilla bourbon nuances and a hint of caramel plus very creamy nutty again like hazelnut cream. Those berry aspect are the strongest within the second steeping. This fellow got a lot of strength and isn’t losing much for many infusions. A very warming chilling tea. Somehow it really sets you a view months into the future and gives you the cozy warming feel of Winter and Christmas
