EARLY HARVEST OLD TREE YUNNAN RED TEA

ORIGIN
This tea is one of the most famous Chinese red teas nowadays. Like authentic Yunnan tea, this Tou Cai Dian Hong is made from the tea leaves harvested during the second of February which is considered the best quality harvest. Old bushes or trees are grown in Wa Kan Shan mountains at 1,650 m altitude. Made from spring harvest, this tea has a sweet, deep taste with noble energy and good aging potential.

ORGANOLEPTICS
The beautiful spring buds and leaves, covered with golden hair, make this tea one of the most gorgeous red teas, therefore, is considered the highest quality. The dry tea leaves smell refreshing and sweet with notes of chocolate and nuts. After keeping tea in a warm teapot, it starts to develop bakery notes. After rinsing, the tea acquires unusual notes like fried tofu and black bread.

The taste is sweet, smooth, and deep, with clear notes of nuts, bread, and cacao. After long steeping, it can have a little astringent note in the aftertaste. This tea has nice calming and warming properties, so it is a very good choice for evening tea sessions.
