Zunyi Xiao Ye Hong
Zunyi Xiao Ye Hong is a great choice for everyday tea breaks: strong, invigorating and very fragrant. It is a red tea from Guizhou province (Zunyi County), harvest 2019. As raw materials, spring shoots of a Da Ye (large-leaved) cultivar were used.
The dry tea consists of small, flagellum-twisted, brown tips.
The fragrance of the dry leaf is restrained, woody with a berry hint.
The transparent infusion has an amber shade.
The bouquet is warm and vivid, woody-and-spicy, with biscuit and berry notes. The fragrance is deep and warm, fruity-and-woody.
The taste is rich and strong, sweetish, a bit tart, with refreshing berry sourness and spicy nuances.
Brew the tea with near-boiling water (98°С) in a porcelain gaiwan or in a teapot of porous clay. The proportion is 5-6 g per 100 ml. The first infusion should take 5-7 seconds; after this, do flash-infusions of about 1 second each. For later infusions, increase the infusion time if necessary. You can repeat infusing up to approximately 8 times, while the tea remains tasteful.
