This is a pure bud Feng Qing area black tea. The tea varietal is a classic Feng Qing hybrid grown for more than 70 years. This is from the original (and old) plantation bushes. The tea was plucked during the first flush of Spring and then expertly processed into this complex and delicious Dian Hong style black tea.
The taste is pungent, sweet, and earthy with a malty-thick viscous mouth feel. The aroma is sweet and floral. The buds are thick, hairy and heavy. The tea can be infused many many times without losing it's interesting and delicious taste!
