Bellwether - Yunnan Golden Bud Red Tea - 2 oz
This organic black comes from the area of Simao, harvest during the Spring flush 2018 at an altitude of 1300 meters. Bellwether is grown on the southern slope of Ma Wei Mountain west of Pu'er City. The processing is typical of black tea with sun withering, rolling, oxidation (three hours) and drying. This robust Yunnan red tea consists of one leaf and one bud plucking. The taste is strong with chocolatey fruit and vegetal notes. The leaf and bud sets give a complex, full-bodied strong taste and mouth feel. We recommend brewing it many times Gong Fu or bowl tea style. In the words of one tea lover, Bellwether engages the entire sensorium- deep, rich, dark, mesmerizing, transporting. Red teas tend to be the most enlivening, so we suggest enjoying this tea in the morning.
