Add to my notebook

This highly aromatic black tea from Fujian is one of M. He’s recent experimentations. Skilfully transformed following the Chinese methods for black tea, the Jin Guan Yin (a cultivar from the Wuyi Mountains normally used for wulong production) reveals an exceptionally smooth and fruity profile.

Releasing very little tannins during its infusion, the Jin Guan Yin Hong gives a smooth liquor with notes of sweet potato and dried fruits. Its fresh and lightly tart finish brings sourdough bread to mind. Try it with a shortbread cookie for a perfect afternoon delight.
