High Mountain Sunset


My new 'dragon and tiger' Cha Bu feelks small as I face the valley across Ching Jing (2000 meters high). A little bit further right (south), Qi Lai Mountain is surrounded by mist (picture below). In my cups, Oolong from ... Qi Lai Mountain! I can see and drink Qi Lai Shan at the same time! It feels like flying like an eagle! And the evening mountain air is so cool, even in the middle of August! But the daytime sun is much stronger thanks to the thinner air (we all got a tan!) It's no wonder top high mountain Oolong leaves absorb such energy, clarity and freshness!

This is ART, Stephane...

I have been drinking your top quality spring 2011 Luanze Qi Lai Shan (2200m) today - and we opened it yesterday at the first meeting of a tea-philosophy-group (Reading "The Book of Tea" by Okakura Kakuzo)... they were stunned by it, too. Thankyou!!
