"Small golden buds" is made of the very first spring tea shoots (harvest 2017) in Fengqing County (North-west tea region of Yunnan Province).
In appearance: middle size, silky, brown-yellow buds with golden fluff. The aroma is warm, honey-biscuit. The infusion is transparent, yellow ocher hue.
The brewed tea has warm, colorful, honey-biscuit flavor with woody and berry notes. The aroma is profound and warm, honey-floral. The taste is smooth and gentle, juicy, sweet, with tender berry acidity, transforming into velvety finish.
Brewing suggestions. Brew tea with hot boiling water (95°C) in a gaiwan or a teapot for red tea 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 a few seconds), increasing exposure time for each subsequent brewing, if necessary. You can repeat this method up to 8-9 times.
Lovely ceremonial tea: refined and deep, cheering, heart-warming and relaxing.
