Red Fujian

$40.50
| /

China is the origin of all styles of tea, and this black tea hails from the area where the category was first invented—Fujian Province.

Made on a mountaintop farm at 3,000 feet elevation from the mei zhan cultivar, which produces large, slow-growing leaves, this tea is a classic easy drinker. It brews up a seductive, deep brick-amber color in the cup; rich flavors of cocoa and dried fruit—think apricots and dates—last through several infusions. Enjoy the sweet aroma and pleasantly weighty texture.

I can pronounce Swee Punch Nee Tea but it's not showing in google today. Perhaps it was only favored by Jewish Mitel-Europa Jews--Grandmother had a Russian looking, decorated tea pot that must have held 500 ml. My first response on tasting the Red was, "It's tea....as I remember it from childhood." It's not a sentiment I often experience: how authentic an experience could one have if he buys 120 tea bags that weigh an aggregate of 4 oz.

There absolutely are notes of cocoa, apricot and dates. A lovely afternoon tea that held up to several steeps. Wonderful, smooth, complex.

Delicious! For fans of Mao Feng and/or 2nd flush Darjeelings.
