红乌龙

Harvest
April 2019

Origin
Anxi, Fujian

An experimental oolong from Mr. Lin Zhenwen from Luoyan, Anxi region of Fujian. Mr. Lin uses handpicked leaves of the Huangjingui or Golden Cassia varietal for this tea. The processing of this tea is more similar to that of black tea than oolong; it involves greater bruising of the leaves which leads to higher oxidation levels, followed by a long and slow roasting process.

This tea has the sweetness and floral notes of a black tea, and the richness and nuttiness of a good oolong – the best of both worlds.

Putting a QR code on a tea package is an awesome idea! The initial aroma was bursting with longgon and woody notes. Bits of lychee too. Now I really want a longgon. The first steep started with minerality and fruity longgon notes but as the steep went on it changed to heavier wood notes with the longgon taking a back seat. Second steep held up nicely. There is a flavor in there I can’t quite pin down. I find it in other oolongs from China the mix of fruity, woody, and minerality brings it on and my palate doesn’t quite know where to put it. I brought this one to Greece with me but I think I brought too much tea with. Just didn’t have the time to get to all of it and there were some mornings we woke up too enjoy a good gong fu session. You don’t rush gong fu. Third steep is losing flavor but if steeped longer than five minutes it gains some nice dry wood flavors.

Better to travel with too much tea than run out! It’s light anyway.

So true. I got lazy at a few points and started using the tea bags provided by the hotel and I only had one, from Apanemo, that was actually quite good. But definitely made me glad I brought my own.
