FUJIAN HUANG JUN GUI HONG BLACK TEA - 2 oz
This is an interesting get-it-while-you-can, experimental black tea from Anxi, Fujian, China made by an oolong tea farmer. Crafted similar to a Taiwanese black tea, but with the local Huang Jin Gui oolong cultivar lending its incredible floral, fruity and spicy aroma to the dry twisted leaf. The tea soup is where things get interesting: savory and earthy with toffee, toasted rice and an intriguing lilac note on the finish, it reminds of a cross between a darker Wuyi Yancha and Fujian oolong, full in flavor but lighter in weight. Very enjoyable, unusual creation that has come out of the World Pandemonium. I would brew at about 205 F.
