Foshou: Winter 2018 Special Acquisition
Charcoal-baked yet delicate, this batch nearly dispenses with the dry finish usually associated with foshou tea. The aromas are light but durable, and the flavor very smooth and hinting at sweet through many infusions. This combination of delicate flavors and consistent infusions is a rare find in general, but even more so in the hard-to-find foshou cultivar.

Foshou: Spring 2015 Premium
This batch has really allowed the qualities of the foshou varietal to come to the fore. The light pilsner aroma and dry flavor are enhanced by careful charcoal baking, which adds a touch of toastiness and makes for an exceedingly smooth tea experience. This batch and the spring 2015 tieguanyin provide clear examples of what consitutes “dry” and “sweet” in a tea.
