Dark Forest 2018 Spring Fengqing Dianhong Black Tea
- Additional information
This dianhong is something that any black tea lover can’t afford to pass up. Available in limited quantity, this tea is made from “wild” old tree material.
Now, the term “wild” is something that we typically don’t like to throw around too much. It’s often misused and misapplied, and there is no true consensus or standard definition for it. In this case, we feel it’s safe to say that this tea is not from your ordinary garden varietal though, so to speak. Due to this difference in varietal and environment, the dry leaf of this tea also appears significantly darker and without the presence of golden buds.
As can be found with our Sabertooth Dianhong, this tea has a very rich flavour, with a smooth and sweet profile. A noticeable chocolate and cherry taste is present as well. It also presents a unique fragrance, which makes itself known before even taking a sip, and lingers in the mouth well after that.
Part of this tea’s unique character is due to its processing style, which allows it to develop with age, making it suitable for storing for up to 2 years without a serious loss of fragrance.
recommend insist on brewing this tea gongfu style in order to extract the most enjoyment and range of flavour.
This tea is sold in 15g units.
