Add to my notebook

This black tea, a recent innovation of Mr He, is composed of long curly leaves decorated with golden buds. In infusion, rich chocolate and gourmet notes (peanut oil) stimulate our senses. Its coppery and smooth liquor unfolds on the palate with an amazing complexity, combining tart, sweet and even umami (oyster) with its nuances of root vegetables (parsnips) and spices. A silky tea from beginning to end.  To learn more about this product, see this blog article.

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.

Huiming

This tea from Zhejiang is produced by the master hand of Mr He, a dynamic and forward-thinking producer. The curly leaves accompanied by generous buds release in infusion a tasty and oily liquor. Bright and lively, it deploys a powerful fragrance of spring flowers. Its fruity (peach) and grassy nuances support its long nebulous finish. A fine and balanced tea.
