Sundried Red Tea "Wild Trees of Nannuo Mountain" is made of the very first spring tea shoots (harvest 2018) in a small family tea farm in Nannuo Mountain (Menghai County).
In appearance: middle size flagella of brown leaves and reddish-yellow buds. The aroma is restrained, woody-herbal. The infusion is transparent, hazelnut color.
The brewed tea has complex, woody-herbal bouquet with notes of rye bread, chokeberry, buckwheat honey and citrus. The aroma is calm and warm, with woody and berry hints. The taste is saturated and smooth, juicy, sweetish, a bit tart, with bright lemon acidity and spicy nuances, transforming into sappy, lingering aftertaste.
Brewing suggestions. Brew tea with hot boiling water (95-100°C, in order to open properly, this tea needs a high temperature) in a gaiwan or a teapot made of porous clay. The proportion is 6 g per 100 ml. The first infusion should last for 8-10 seconds. After that do short brews (just for 2-3 seconds), increasing exposure time for each subsequent brewing, if necessary. You can repeat this method up to 10 times.
Interesting ceremonial tea: simultaneously restrained and deep, multifaceted and cohesive. It relieves fatigue and switches attention, refreshes the mind and warms the body.
