Red tea from Tulou, harvest 2009.
In appearance: large, burgundy-brown flagella of twisted leaves. The aroma is deep, roasted. The liquor is transparent, with meadow honey hue.
The brewed tea has warm, roasted bouquet with floral and fruity notes (the flavor-aromatic profile resembles the Wuyishan yancha). The aroma is deep and warm. The taste is mature, full-bodied and sappy, sweetish, with delicate fruity sourness and thin bitterness in lingering finish.
Brew tea with hot water (95°С) in a porcelain gaiwan or in a teapot of porous clay. The proportion is 5 g per 100 ml. The time of the first steeping is about 5 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.
Red tea from Tulou is great choice for an emotional reboot in the second half of the day that clears away the cobwebs in your mind and combats mental and emotional fatigue.
