Caffeine Level: HighItem # 0006
WHAT IT IS This is one of the finest black teas from the Fujian province of Southern China, known for its smooth texture and full-bodied, robust flavor. It is usually picked for only a few days each spring before the tender shoots of the tea plant grow into full leaves. The black tea flavor is reached by maximum oxidation.
FLAVOR NOTES There are no additives or artificial flavoring in this tea, yet it has distinct sweet and almost fruity undertones. When brewed for a long time, it can produce cocoa undertones.
BACKGROUND Originating during the Song Dynasty, this imperial tribute tea features golden tipped black leaves consisting of one leaf and one bud.
