Prodigy Black Tea of Yingde

Although the ancestry of cultivar Ying Hong #9 was taken from the rugged mountains of Yunnan 60 years ago, the tea tree has acquired a very different characteristics in the much milder climate on the rolling hills of middle Guangdong. However, not all farms are able to produce a warm sweet black tea with a rich and smooth body as Tea Hong’s Ying Hong Nine. This patiently withered and oxidised selection is processed in the Guangdong style and optimally baked for its creamy characteristics and fruity accents. A prize-winning quality at great value.

Taste profile

Floral, sweet and creamy aroma in an overtone of woody fragrance with accents of fresh and sun-dried lychee and touches of spices. Full and smooth body that is bright and velvety in the mouth. Low in astringency with a slight ting of acid. Sweet aftertaste with hints of the fruit. Lasting after-aroma.

Infusion tips

To enjoy a really full and smooth body with velvety tactility, use 2 g per 100 ml of 95°C water in a maximally 2 cup pot and infuse for 5 minutes. Decant all the liquor once time is up. To intensify the aroma, shorten the infusion time and increase the leaf to water ratio.
