Spring 2016 Old Arbor Red Tea,
Lincang, Yunnan, China

We turn to Foundation for grounding and centering. The depth of this beautiful tea, harvested from Assamica trees up to 200 years old, comes through in its complex, full-bodied flavor and stabilizing qi (energy)—rooting you into your body and settling you into the present moment. The sensations and energy come on gradually and gently, making it a great tea for both morning or afternoon.

Brewing Suggestions: Try bowl tea style, brewed leaves-in-a-bowl or with a teapot, with a generous amount of leaves.
