Small, cute red tea cake :)

5 stars 4.0 This review helped: 0 / 0

Interesting thought, why not. Longer term storage would not harm red tea, quite the opposite. Just I would not store it together with puerhs ;) Otherwise, I find it very practical solution. I travel quite a lot and I am carrying my tea with me in the backpack. I am keeping samples that I do not want to crash in the hard case of "lunch box". Red tea usually occupies a lot of space in a bag, but this 100g read tea cake gets packaged very well for a travel.

Dry leaves start to smell nicely, sweat in a warm tea pot.

Full flavor, slightly sweet with a quick transition to astringency. Very pleasant taste remains in the mouth. Color of infusion is dark red.

There are remains of fluff in the cup. There is quite a lot of golden tips coverd by this fluff in the tea. Tea also contains whole leaves and twigs.
Tea has quite relaxing energy. I feel like I am made of rubber.

It is a very good red tea with a lot of tips. Of course - Jinggu Da Bai Hao - is much better, but also twice as expensive.

Preheat pot, put dry tea in - 6g - 80 ml, let tea releases its fragrance - water 95°C - 20s/5/10/15/20/25/30/35/45/60. It is the drink for the whole day.

Quotes

„Head Tea (aka Golden Melon) is shaped like a ball, weighing between 2 Liangs and 10 Jins ( 1 Jin = 500 grams). They were mainly for domestic trade or serving as tributes to emperors. Stacks of Golden Melons progressing in size from gigantic to small are considered to be a status symbol.“
