Black Leaf Special 2017
Fenghuang Da Wuye:
If classic Phoenix oolongs are too sweet, and bouquet ones too florally aromatic for you, Tea Hong’s Black Leaf Special maybe your cup of tea. It is produced from a new cultivar developed for maltiness and complexity in taste. A very different oolong from the rest. Our special selection is harvested from higher altitudes near the oolong mecca that is Wudong.
Net weight: 40 g (1.4 oz) in Kraft-alu pack
Lightly sweet floral aroma with a warm, creamy tone. Bright, malty body with a suggestion of apple juice. Elegantly complex accents of fresh herbs and bites of citrus peel bitterness. Long, sweet aftertaste.
Great for conventional approach, but even better in the specialist gongfu approach using a gaiwan. 90°C for a softer body, +3~5° for more aroma and some sharpness. Use slightly less leaf if using conventional approach to understand the tea to later adjust according to personal preference.
