Description: While this style of tea originated in the Fujian province of China, production is spreading throughout the tea growing regions. This Yunnanese expression was crafted from a very fine plucking, consisting of well-twisted leaves and golden, downy tips. The sweet aroma has a note of maple syrup. The complex cup has notes of malt, caramel, and a bit of red wine.
Steeping Suggestions: - Leaf Quantity: 2¼ g/cup Water Temp: 212° (boiling) Steep Time: 4-5 min.
