This black tea is made from the same cultivar as Long Jing green tea. Also known as Jiuqu Hongmei this is a unique black tea that embodies the fruity charather of a black tea with the savoury undertone of a Long Jing green tea shining through. Long Jing Red lingers on the palate longer than most black teas, leaving a sweet plum aftertaste.

This is an easy to prepare tea. It can be brewed straight in the mug for everyday drinking, and it also does well with gong fu approach in multiple short infusions. Gong fu technique really brings out the floral notes in this tea, but the infusion is flavourful and refreshing whatever technique is used. 

Origin: Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China

TCM Quality: Neutral

Tasting notes:  Plum, sweet fruit with a savoury undertone, like a fruit chutney, crisp and refreshing, floral
