China: Organic Lapsang Zheng Shan Song Gan Black Tea
Organic Lapsang Zheng Shan Song Black Tea
Organic certified farm (JAS, USDA, EU) since 1997
The dry leaf aroma has a nice smokey aroma that is very deceptive. This hongcha is picked in late April to mid May with leaves that are a bit more mature but have a very nice pronounced taste. This tea has been expertly crafted with many layers of taste. The mineral sharpness is unmistakably from the Wuyi mountains.
Elegant amount of smokiness that lingers in the back of the palatte. Slightly tannic yet sweet and deep layers of taste.
