The tea was picked in 2023 Spring. They used traditional Dian Hong (Yunnan Black) technique to make it, with some sun drying involved.

In final taste and character this black ( or red tea in Chinese ) is between the sun dried Shai Hong ( 曬太陽 / 晒太阳 )and Dian Hong ( 滇红 ).

We like how the tea smoothly spreads in the whole body and calms you, arriving  to a chilled state of mind.

Tasting notes:
Steamed gaiwan: caramel, autumn forest
Tastes, feelings: the brew has a rich texture, oily, full bodied. Honey and dried fruit, dried apricot notes with a long lasting aftertaste. The calming and warming effect comes quick through the whole body.
