Vast Expanse - Dian Hong Honey Red Tea - 2 oz.
Sweet, thick, vibrant and malty, this is one of the best Dian Hong red teas we have yet encountered. Vast Expanse comes from first flush Spring 2019 Assamica tea leaves harvested from old-growth trees. The bright, crisp maroon liquor is strongly invigorating, moving through the entire body and brightening the mind. Complex and full-bodied with a traditional honey fragrance and flavor, this ruby-colored treasure is extremely patient, brewing for many steepings. Yiwu is one of the original mountains where all tea was born, yielding an array of high-altitude tea gardens, both old-growth and eco-arboreal. In this case, the oxidation rate is lower than many traditional red teas, which was intentional in order to maintain the energy of the old growth trees. As good a red tea as you could find.
