In appearance: small, thin, dark brown, flagellum-twisted leaves. The fragrance is restrained, spicy-and-fruity. The liquor is transparent, with a chestnut shade.
The bouquet of ready-made tea is warm and vivid, spicy-and-fruity, with biscuit, roasted and smoky notes. The aroma is warm, fruity with a smoky accent. The taste is saturated and strong, a bit tart, sweetish, with fine fruit acidity and refreshing finish.
Brew tea with hot water (90-95°С) in a porcelain gaiwan or in a teapot of porous clay. The proportion is 4-5 g per 100 ml. The time of the first steeping is about 5-7 seconds. After that do short steeps (just for 1-2 seconds), increasing steeping time for each subsequent step, if necessary. You can repeat this method up to 8 times.
Wild-grown «Xiao Zhong» is a great choice for daily tea breaks: multifaceted, rich and vigorous.
