Wisp in the Wind

Bada Mountain Red Tea 2023


These wispy golden tip leaves belie the depth and richness of the tea. A nice astringency grabs the back of the tongue and gives it structure. A unique sweetness of caramel and plum comes through with far less of the chocolatey flavor characteristic of a golden tip red tea. (You can taste this cocoa note in our bestseller Panacea.)

The balance of the flavors – bitterness, sweetness, mild spice, astringency, and smoothness – speaks to refined, expert processing. The flavors aren’t muddied or unclear; there’s an exactitude and simplicity about them. The energy wakes you up, but isn’t stimulating, ideal for the beginning of a slower pace in the Fall. This tea feels clear, spacious, and open.
