Plum Beauty Black 2019 Mengsong Dianhong



After our original sheng and then shou, Plum Beauty expansion has now moved into black tea territory.

This tea is made from the same “silver” grade old tree material as our original 2017 Plum Beauty sheng and makes for an excellent black tea that is both rich and fragrant.

Unlike most black teas, this one is processed uniquely, undergoing a single roasting that leaves a little bit of room on the top for further oxidization. Our experience drinking this exact tea from previous years is that it can be expected to smooth and fill out over time, making it a suitable candidate for storage of up to 2 years.

As it is right now, this tea has some crisp fuity notes and a unique fragrance, but you can expect it to develop over time. In order to get the most out of it, we recommend reducing your water temperature slightly to 80-85c.

Picking period: Pre-April 8

Please note that the 250g size does not include a tin.

    This is a great black tea. It has such a rich, full flavor and is very smooth. It has the earthy notes of a Dian Hong, but some unique notes to it as well.
