Red Plum Classic has been produced from leaves of Longjing tea bushes since its beginning in mid 19th century. Because of the nature of this unique use of cultivar, it acquires a very different character from most other black tea: tastes and aromas associated more with berries and plums on a foundation that reminds of the savoriness of finer Longjings, albeit the light, yet typical sweetness of finer black teas.
Mild floral fragrance with the warmth of cookies and chocolate accented with berries and plums. Lively, lightly sweet body with accents of berries and an undertone of Longjing savouriness. Refreshing, sweet, lightly citric and floral aftertaste.
For an easy mug of tea, infuse for 7~8 minutes using a ratio of 1g to 130ml of water. Decrease the tealeaves to water ratio but increase the infusion duration when using a 4-cup teapot or larger.
If you prefer to maximise the taste experience, keep infusion time short (30 sec ~ 3 minutes) for the tea’s lively and floral character. Increase the ratio of tealeaves to at least 2g to 100 ml of water. Use an infusion vessel of capacity between 100ml to 250ml.
* We are proud to be able to say that the current harvest has a most outstanding and archetypical taste profile of the original Red Plum Classic.
The natural bouquet of an oolong comes as an integral part of the taste profile, such as that of our Tieguanyin Light. Not only is this coherent “oneness” a factor we tea purists cherish for purity’s sake, but is also perhaps a freshness we all need amongst the overdose of artificiality in modern life. Our Tieguanyin differs from others by being more faithful to the traditional style — less green but more fermented. This is reflected in its relatively more neutral TCM character, a silkier texture and a softer, rounder body.Net weight: 120g (4.2 oz) in Kraft-alu pack
Huangshan Maofeng green tea is a must-have souvenir when one visits Huangshan. However, even if you know the way to real teashops rather than tourist traps, a pack of such quality as Tea Hong's Cuiyu would come at a high price. That is why this pleasant tasting and slightly sweet baked green tea is a most popular item not only for our retail, but also export. To maintain consistent high quality, we employ only harvest before the lunar almanac demarkation of “guyu” — the first rain for seeding, around early to mid-April. "Yuqian" — before the rain — is the traditional term for this.Net weight: 35 g (1.2 oz) in Kraft-alu packSaveSaveSaveSaveSaveSave
