Feng Huang Hong Cha

Try this tea first
Product code: CSTN-22

Originating in Guangdong, this Chinese black tea bears the typical form of the wulong teas produced in the Feng Huang mountains.

These long twists release, once infused, charming fragrances of flowers and warm honey. Its liquor, slightly tart and flavorful, displays intense aromas of berries (blackcurrant) and roasted chestnuts.

Enhanced by a delicate bite, tempered by its malty (barley sugar) character, its finish is long and comforting.
