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

„Longjing tea was granted the status of Gong Cha, or Imperial tea, in Qing Dynasty by Chinese emperor Kangxi. According to the legend, Kangxi's grandson Qianlong visited West Lake during one of his famous holidays.
He went to the Hu Gong Temple under the Lion Peak Mountain (Shi Feng Shan) and was presented with a cup of Longjing tea. In front of the Hu Gong Temple were 18 tea bushes. Emperor Qianlong was so impressed by the Longjing tea produced here that he conferred these 18 tea bushes special imperial status. The trees are still living and the tea they produce is auctioned annually for more money per gram than gold.“
