A fine example of date flavor and lotus aroma perfectly balanced. Trinity is a rich, relaxing, and benevolent tea.

 

Trinity is mellow. Trinity is smooth and round. Trinity is delectable. You get the picture.

 

This tea is a testimony to the value of taking one's time. Although a shou, Trinity wasn’t released until eight years after production to ensure a guaranteed connoisseur product.

 

Three teas, two from our teachers' gardens and one from a neighbor, were harvested, processed, and set to store in the year 2000. After seven years the separately stored raw materials were blended and bricked - then put away for a year to allow integration and harmonization.
