This is a delicious sweet red tea. It makes an amazing cold brew, but is also fabulous hot.
Like all Zealong tea, it is a little overpriced for what it is. It IS however a great quality organic tea and I’m happy to buy it to support the farm as I’m from NZ.

It is sweet with fruit and berry notes. Mildly sour, no bitterness,and no astringency. Very (very) smooth and sweet.

My main critique is that it is very thin in the mouth. It has a reasonable, but not fantastic hui gan. Basically it has a great upfront flavor but not too much going on under the hood.

I enjoy it, but at $33NZD for 50g, i’d rather buy a reasonable Chinese red.
