This tea, from the Bohea family of teas (a term originating from the landscape of the very small Wu Yi mountain region), offers a typically strongly assertive smoky aroma and taste, which it obtains through drying over pine wood, which is the traditional method for processing this tea.
The silver-tipped leaves of this first flush Darjeeling offering yield an amber gold liquor with a fresh, lively character. The flavorful cup is delightful on the palate, smooth with floral hints. A refreshing pungency is balanced with an overall honey-sweet quality that lingers long into the finish.
This tea offers a harmonious combination of fruit, floral and smoky aroma and taste, which is typical for the Keemun black tea, one of the ten best known Chinese teas.
