Add to my notebook

The major producing region of Fujian in China brings us a black tea with small dark leaves, coppery buds and fragrances of opulent flowers (peony), musk, and sweet spices.

On the palate, its sweet taste combines with a range of woody (conifer) and fruity aromas. Supple and balanced, its liquor offers a lovely gourmet persistence of cocoa and peanut oil.

A must for any fan of black tea.
