Our first pressed Shaihong processed (sun baked) black teas, this tea is an example of why it’s good to keep an open mind.
Right out of the gate, things start off with light caramel and fruity notes in the early infusions, as more intense sweetness build in the 2nd and 3rd steeps. The body and mouthfeel is also quite impressive for a black tea in this price range, while a noticeable huigan (returning sweetness) lingers in the mouth and throat. As the session goes on, some floral notes start to emerge as well.
This tea was a bit of an unexpected, but pleasant surprise. Suitable for any time of day, this tea is also suitable for any weather, offering lots of warmth for the winter, and a refreshing crispness to suit summer. And while we’re skeptical about ageing Dianhongs beyond 2 years, this may have the potential to take things further – only time will tell.
