From Yunnan Craft

Tea from small bush trees in Feng Qing processed by unique way called “gao xiang” which requires to control precisely last step of processing. The final roasting is done on high temperature and short time. This is the another crafted red tea by our expert with limited quantity. The tea has a very distinctive cocoa-chocolate flavor with fresh nuts.

Generous sample kindly provided by the proprietor. 25g yields about two lengthy sessions.

Prepared in my Jian Shui gaiwan, and served in my porcelain tea cup via my glass cha hai. Filtered Santa Monica municipal water just off the boil throughout.

7+ infusions from 10 to 90 seconds. Fulvous liquor; aromatics of fresh cut wood, lychee, and berry; sweet mellow palate entry is again fruity and perhaps slightly floral or spicy, with a pleasant nutty finish.

I was expecting at least a hint of smoke, roast, or char given the high temp final processing, but none of these elements obtrude on the rounded, youthful, easy-drinking flavor profile. Fairly potent/energizing with regard to caffeine, this would be a suitable daily-drinker at the office if you like the flavor signature (which is perhaps more distinctive than my notes suggest, it’s just that I can’t put a name to the individual flavor that is present throughout).

A nice nutty sweet hong cha. Savory notes of roasted nuts and pleasant woodiness give a backbone to sweet notes of dark caramel, toasted marshmallow, dark honey, and blackberry syrup. Even hints of toasted coconut.

Great daily drinker. Be sure to use lots of leaf. My first few sessions turned out a bit thin because I was underleafing (which is very rare for me!)
