"Purple charm" from Ailaoshan (Yunnan Province) spring harvest 2018.
In appearance: thin flagella of dark brown tips. The fragrance is intensive, fruity. The liquor is transparent, with chestnut shade.
The bouquet of ready-made tea is vivid and warm, fruity, with black chokeberry, spicy and honey notes. The fragrance is deep and warm, calming. The taste is full-bodied and sappy, velvety, a bit tart, sweetish, with light citrus sourness, spicy nuances and lingering finish.
Brew tea with hot water (95°С) in a 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 6-8 seconds. After that do short steeps (just for 2-3 seconds), increasing steeping time for each subsequent step, if necessary. You can repeat this method up to 6-7 times.
"Purple charm" is a good choice for everyday tea breaks – rich and vivid taste, warming, mild energizing effect.
