Winter Plum – High Mountain Wild Red Tea – Li Shan, Taiwan 2016 - 2 oz.
Winter Plum is Taiwanese red tea at its finest. We especially appreciate the pronounced roast, flavors of rosebud and fruity melon, and beautiful bittersweet balance. The Cha Qi is gently illuminating, but not overstimulating, which makes this a nice red tea for any time of the day. On a cold winter day, this is the kind of red tea that seems to match the climate. The slight age has lent body and depth to the tea, and perhaps made the energy less stimulating than other red teas. The small delicate leaves are best brewed in a small gongfu pot with small cups, but you can enjoy this tea in whatever way you have available.
