TTES.21 is a black tea from Yuchi, Nantou County, Taiwan.
TTES.21 refers to the tea cultivar used (also called Hong Yun, a cross
between Keemun and Nepalese Assamica from Kyang). TTES stands for “Taiwan Tea
Experiment Station,” a research and development center that works to create new
tea cultivars well suited to specific areas across Taiwan. The hand picked
leaves of this Taiwanese black tea are long, wiry and stylish.
Hong Yun 紅韻 can be directly translated as Red Rhyme. The name comes from Chinese Idiom Hong Yun Dan Tou 鴻運當頭 which means Fortune shines down. If you pick up first 2 words you get Hong Yun then you use them in a different meaning while keeping the poem in mind. Hong also means Hong Cha (Black Tea).
A price of this tea is slightly higher than other cultivars from Yuchi. The reason is that there are just a few producers specialized in this cultivar and a yearly production is very limited.
