Glade of Bees- Honey Sweet Red Tea- Lincang, Yunnan 2 oz.
Glade of Bees is a spindly 2 leaf, 1 bud red tea from the birthplace of all tea - Lincang, Yunnan China. Harvested and traditionally hand-processed during spring 2019, this wild-arbor Assamica tea is rich, spicy, floral and honey-sweet. The balance of flavors is wonderful. It provides ostensibly endless steepings and we appreciate the uplifting but not overly stimulating qualities that you sometimes find in other red teas.
We like this tea brewed sidehandle for big bowls as a gently warming morning tea. It's also wonderful brewed gongfu in small pots with small cups. We find 200 F the ideal brewing temp with short steepings.
