i can’t purport to be an expert on Chinese black/red teas but the quick tasting cup of 2013 Simao Gao Shan Hong Cha from Yunnan was fab…rich, smooth/unctuous with no bitterness or astringency and a lip smacking fruity follow through…cool…
aromatic dry, this rare red tea comes from the high mountain of the Simao area, picked in early April…
tasty lookin’ after brew, the leaf a rich dark-chocolate colour, nice and fruity to the nose, while the deep copper coloured brew itself was lip-smacling due to smoothness and unctuousness not a brisk freshness…great either way…yum, more to come me reckons..
