From the summit of Mount Zhenghe in Fujian (China), the long golden buds of this black tea are seductive simply from the chocolaty smell of the dry leaves! Once infused, they deploy intoxicating scents of lavender, lemon grass and hemlock.
Feng Huang Hong Cha
Originating in Guangdong, this black tea bears the typical form of the wulong teas produced in the Feng Huang region.
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.
