This variety of oolong is my personal favorite. This cultivar is more mild than others I have tried. The taste is light and sweet. The complexity diminished quickly with successive steeps, and I wouldn’t recommend more than two.
A very pretty leaf, long slender and delicate. Red is a very appropriate name. An earthy woody front, which I wasn’t too fond of gave way to a long oily finish which was very pleasant. A second steep brought out hints of rose and possibly citrus.
