From Crimson Lotus Tea

The legend of the Moon Princess is a famous one in Chinese history. Her name is Chang’e and she lives on the moon with a giant rabbit. She is immortal, but is banished to the moon and cannot leave. She plays an important role in the Autumn harvest and festivals.

We have pressed this tea a few times now. This Autumn material is potent! This is a really great tea the hits far above the price point. The material comes from Bangdong. Bangdong is so close and so similar to Xigui that most people would sell this material as Xigui ‘area’.

The aroma is vegetal with hints of sweet corn. The body is thick and immediate. The flavor is orchid sweetness with a slight bitterness and some astringency. There is a sweet aftertaste that lingers. The tea can brew quite strong if you let it.

This year we commissioned a custom piece of artwork by tea lover and PNW artist Jake Knapp. We couldn’t be happier with the design. It is gorgeous and adds so much to the story of this tea. Check out Jake ( @knappuer ) and his work here: https://www.instagram.com/knappuer/
