From Yunnan Sourcing

First flush of pure bud “Dian Hong” Feng Qing area tea was used to compose this special process tea!

The freshly picked tea is wilted and then briefly fried in tropical Yunnan muscovado style (un-processed) red sugar. The sugar is mixed with water, and used sparingly in the frying process of the leaves. The brewed tea has a noticeably sweet taste and a nice malty full mouth-feel. The sweetness imparted by processing is subtle, and not overpowering at all! The unprocessed sugar (from cane stalks) imparts a special aroma and taste which commingles with the tea making it a lovely experience.

A unique tea never offered before!

Late-February Harvest!

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.

The dry leaf aroma immediately brings to mind alfalfa/hay – the leaves themselves are uniformly fine, wiry, with faint touches of gold.

8 infusions from 10 to 120 seconds: Tawny liquor; potent alfalfa/hay aromatics (especially with the first infusion); deep rich flavor, malty with clean grassy cane notes – medium-sweet, slightly toasty finish; medium-bodied, lightly tannic, moderately energizing. Flavor tapers fairly quickly after the 4th or 5th infusion.

Another good daily drinker with unique processing contributing to a subtle but unusual aroma/flavor.
