From Easy Tea Hard Choice

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.

Today I used a touch more leaf but pretty much the same steeping parameters… it turned out different, but good! People sometimes talk about a waffle note with Butiki’s Taiwanese Wild Mountain Black, and I have to admit I have never tasted waffles in that tea. But perhaps that put an idea in my head because this totally tasted waffley. For sure less fruit, and somewhat less caramel. But now a baked, doughy flavor that does remind me of waffles. This is definitely an interesting tea and definitely my favorite black tea from this company.

Sounds nice!

You’re the second person I’ve seen that said this was their favorite. I’ve only tried the Red Jade – might have to make this my work tea for tomorrow.

i think this one was my Favourite from the easy teas that dexter was kind enough to share with me. It’s not too light, and also has a fruity flavour to it that is unlike other teas like this that i’ve had. I quite like this one…even cooled (work distracted me!) it’s tasty!

Definitely my favorite too.

First Easy Tea Hard Choice for me, thanks Dexter3657!

I can see how this is like Bai Hao Oolong but more oxidized—it has the same leafhopper-sponsored honey sweet, fruity fragrant notes and smoothness but a little more heft. It read initially to me as an extremely light black, but it also works if you kind of think of it as a heavier version of that oolong. It’s a little unusual (at least to me) and enjoyable, but I think I’d like it more on a warm spring day than this endless ice cold season. Will revisit when it warms up.

This is my personal favorite. Light, honey and the fragrance of grass together with woody hint. I can never have enough of this.
