Black Tea - Spring 2016
Bai Ye Hong Cha has thick sweetness and a very pronounced baked sweet potato taste that lasts many many infusions. This tea is both excellent and peerless. You simply can't have a similar experience with any other tea. Highly recommended for Dan Cong and Black Tea aficionados alike!
This Jin Jun Mei grows in the same areas as Wu Yi's famous Rock Oolongs and has that same mineral sweetness and flower aroma. The tea has been lightly oxidized and retains an almost oolong-like green-ness to it.
This is the classic recipe of light fermentation black tea that has been produced by the Feng Qing tea factory for decades. It is hand-processed at each stage and isn't rolled by machines so the leaf shape is well preserved and un-broken.
The freshly picked tea is wilted and then briefly fried in tropcal Yunnan muscovado style (un-processed) red sugar. The sugar is mixed with water, and used sparily in the frying process of the leaves.
