This blog won't be long because I don't even wanna try to put my feelings into words 'cause it is impossible. Knowing that around 40 years ago (when my parents were maybe 5 years old) a few people were harvesting this tea under miserable circumstances during the cultural revolution , stored for over more than 40 years and now I am drinking this. It's just unbelievable, there are these moments in life where you just wanna cry because you are experiencing something so unique. It's this feeling you can't explain and some people may not experience it in their lifetime.
I did my best to take some nice pictures but I don't have a proffesional camera nor am I a good photographer though I hope you'll enjoy the pictures and you are able to feel a little bit like how I felt during this tea session. Reviewing this tea won't do it any justice but I just want to say it had the most beautiful red colour I ever saw in tea, it was like a very old sherry whisky. The taste was so balanced and I could steep it for more than half an hour and it wouldn't get bitter. And the aftertaste just lingers in your mouth for hours! It's amazing.

I'm still trying to find a good foto editing program, if one of you followers could recommend me someone it would make me very happy and you can expect better blogs :)
