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.
Zhenghe Hong Gong Fu
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.

This black tea, a recent innovation of Mr. He, is composed of long curly leaves decorated with golden buds.
Originating in Guangdong, this black tea bears the typical form of the wulong teas produced in the Feng Huang region.
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.
