|STORY BEHIND THE TEA
||In the past few years, Sun Sing Tea mainly produces good quality teacakes from the old big trees. However, due to limited production the cost became higher and higher every year. In order to maintain the quality and cost in balance, we investigate tea materials from different regions. After several challenges, Huang Shan tea is chosen by Mr. Kings Yeung. Since the land is inaccessible due to the remote region and the tea material is hard to gather, Mr. Yeung suddenly thought of a famous poet, Mr. Tao Yuan Ming, which he had a poem related to Mr. Yeung’s experience. Thus, the teacake was named as “Tao Hua Yuan” to describe the teacake is from a natural and unpolluted environment. The first batch of teacake is combined with spring and autumn tea, which it has strong and tender leaves. The age of tea tree might be one of the reasons that the taste perception and aftertaste is not as rich as MaHei and Luo Shui Dong, but it has a much sweeter taste. The process of picking, killing green, drying and compressing is followed by Mr. Kings Yeung’s special method, it helps to accelerate the aging process. The taste and aroma of this tea gradually changes after a few months of storage in Hong Kong.
