This is a very approachable and aromatic black/red tea made from a relatively new cultivar - Bai Wen. It's a limited edition batch - only 18kg of this tea were made this season, and we are lucky to have some. The tea is hand picked and includes golden tips - unopened buds of the leaves that bring more sweetness to the flavour.
This tea makes a beautiful transition to non-sweetened cup for those who are used to milk and sugar in their tea. It will do well straight in a mug or a large teapot, but is also rich and interesting enough to enjoy in gong-fu method over multiple infusions.
Origin: Songboling, Taiwan
Harvest: 28th July 2016
Picking: Bud and 2 young leaves
Flavour: Fruity and silky, smooth and warm flavour, notes of forest berries and natural sweetness.
