A special Luk On tea, ageing in the presence of a range of Chinese herbs according to the recipe of Li Ching-Yuen, which give the tea its specific properties in connection not only with the beneficial gastrointestinal effects we expect from this tea. The tea produces a rich, dark, powerful infusion with an earthy aroma and taste with coffee sub-tones, all wrapped in a very refined sweet floral aroma.
Li Ching-Yuen was born in 1678 in the town of se Chyi Jiang Hsien in the Chinese Szechuan province, and died in 1928 at the age of 250 years. Li was a herbalist with extensive experience in the field of Chi Kung. In 1927 he was visited by general Yang Sen, who after his death compiled the photographic publication "A Factual Account of the 250 Year-Old Good-Luck Man" (Er Bae Wuu Shyr Suey Ren Ruey Shyr Jih), which provides evidence not only of the length but also of the style of his life. The reference to Li Ching Yuen is evidence for contemporary generations that a man can live without health problems for over 200 years provided that he knows how.
