A good tea for everyday drinking. Has a sweet taste if you don’t brew it too long.
Our Congou, from Fujian Province, reflects the Chinese tendency to use a lighter touch in oxidizing. This tea was grown locally near Fuzhou using traditional farming methods. Medium-size black leaves, uniform and slender, with light mix of gold buds, creates a black tea with depth and a slightly nuanced taste. The flavor is softly sweet and the aroma clean and sweet. This tea is light on the tongue and will show some complexity with a hint of malt and, at times, fruitiness. Milk and sugar can be used with this tea.
