Description:

Jinggu area, it's famous for one of varietal tea trees – Da Bai Hao – “Big White tomentum”. The tea leaves and buds with dense white tomentum are larger than other tea variety. Its delicate aroma is sweet and appealing, its taste is thick mellow and unforgettable.

This is one of highest Yunnan black tea production - first harvest, hand picked and highly selective process. Pleasant taste of Yunnan Hong Cha (black teas). The dry material - hairy aromatic long buds. Rich flavorful cup with lingering notes of honey and little spice, delicate and balanced. The soup is golden with pleasant aroma.

Very good tea for the Gong Fu tea ceremony. Early spring Yunnan black teas are quite rare and expensive, But they have many health benefits and a very delicious taste

Tea covered with golden shiny fluff

5 stars 4.5 This review helped: 0 / 0

Leaves are really beautiful. Dry leaves are covered with golden shiny fluff. It is not much visible on the pictures. Tips are really great and solid. Visually it is a very nice tea. I am using water.100°C. The infusion is brownish-red. Wet leaves smell intensely after overripe berries. The taste is nicely balanced. There is nothing standing out of smooth delicate taste. There is a hint of honey, but the sweetness is minimal and it is covered with a delicate astringency and dry feeling on the tongue.

Personally, I prefer the full bodied taste. I am using 4 grams per 100ml and steep for about 20 to 30s. The taste is still smooth and delicate even for longer steeping. There is just more astringency and dryness on the tongue in the aftertaste. I like it this way :-) It's a nice tea. For those who love classic red tea, I definitely recommend to taste it.

Quotes

„Most green teas with jasmine contain a significant amount of polyphenols, plant-based substances that have proven to have anticancer, antiviral, and antioxidant properties. This helps prevent certain cancers and slows aging by eliminating free radicals. Jasmine is good for diabetes prevention and reducing high blood pressure. It is believed to prevent strokes, heart attacks, thrombosis, and arterial sclerosis.“
