Red of Four Seasons
Description: Red of Four Seasons This is a special black tea which I haven’t mentioned in my blog yet. It is a small leaf variety (local variety originated in Taiwan) The tea manufacturing process is quite similar with Oriental Beauty, which the tea leafs must be bitten by a small green fly (official name is Jacobiasca formosana, but forget about it, just call it small green fly), only the oxidation level is heavier (90%) than which of Oriental Beauty (70%~80%)
Appearance: light golden
Nose: Very strong aroma with a hint of honey (especially the honey of lungan fruit), herbal note of green grass, and fragrance of lungan wood. Very special aroma combined all these factors.
Palate: The liquor body is medium. No sense of bitterness in tongue. Very smooth feeling in palate.
Aftertaste: Aftertaste is strong and lasting. A feeling of sweetness and perfume of honey and wood continue to last in my mouth and nose.
Overall: This is certainly such kind of black tea which I will miss in my dream, just like a mature, charming lady.
Origin: This high quality black tea is sourced from Yuchi township (Sun Moon Lake), Nantou County, Taiwan.
