This blend was born from the idea to create a morning blend that meets all the criteria of traditional breakfast tea, as well as all the needs of 'Gongfu tea' lovers. As a result, this tea can satisfy the most minimal and the highest expectations. Can be brewed both Eastern and Western ways. The tea consists of high-quality loose leaf red (black) tea, blended in specific proportions to provide a rich, multifaceted and complex flavour. Young buds and leaves are processed by experienced tea masters to create a high-quality product. Contains both buds and leaves, which provides delicate sweet notes and a rich, deep taste. Tea reveals itself differently depending on the brewing method.
The aroma of a dry tea leaves has woody base and sweet, coffee, bakery notes. When warmed, the aroma opens up into more woody, nutty, tobacco and chocolate motifs. Rinsed tea leaf radically changes into berries, where the pleasant sourness of blackcurrant harmoniously flows into cherry. The taste is sweet and delicate with pronounced chocolate and berry notes. With longer infusion it turns into bitter dark chocolate. The color of the infusion is clear, and varies from dark amber to coffee. Tea have a long and sweet aftertaste with light notes of smoke and fire. Like a real Gongfu Hong Cha, the tea has rich essential oils, which is reflected in the empty bowl with the sweet aroma of cotton candy, vanilla and wild berries.
This tea can be perfectly brewed and served in a porcelain teaware both Western and Eastern ways. This tea has a beautiful sweet chocolate, nutty fragrance perfect for combining with light chocolate/cacao deserts or being paired with Cognac, Armagnac or Sherry.
