From Spirit Tea

The Ying Hong N°9 big leaf cultivar was crossbred by a regional institute in the late 1950s to capture the most endearing elements of its native Guangdong’s Pearl River Delta terroir through the context of a black tea process. Ms. Tseng and Mr. Lin produce this lot completely free of agrochemicals, even using a proprietary, all-natural fertilizer blended on-site, rife with healthy microorganisms. The tea infuses a stark, vivid red and is full-bodied with structure, velvety smooth mouthfeel and a crisp, sweet finish. Notes of Caramel, Cacao Nibs, and Candied Strawberry.

Backlog:

A few failed attempts with this one. The site describes it as being more of a dessert like tea, noting cocoa nibs, caramel, strawberry, but I’ve only gotten the cocoa nibs with bitterness, tannin, and astringency. I’ve done it western like they recommend using 5g | 340ml water | 205° | 2:30, and 4 grams tumbler style, and it’s too much. I felt like I was drinking a Keemum or a Ceylon-essentially, English Breakfast, so looks like I gotta play with it to see what they are talking about. Maybe it’s just a more bitter tea than I was expecting?
