From Silk Road Teas

Unusual large leaf from Guandong Province has a sweet aroma and a subtle, yet spicy taste. Often enjoyed as a morning beverage that can take milk. Steep for 3 minutes at 195 degrees.

This is one of my first favorite teas ever and still is after many years of use. I think it used to be called Guangdong Red when I first bought it but that provider discontinued it and then I found that Whole Foods carried it in the bulk section. A Silk Roads tea this is a really nice black china tea with a very nice flavor.
Today I missed my steep timer and I oversteeped it… while China black teas generally hold up to oversteeping quite well, at 15 minutes, it’s just too much and has a little bitterness and not nearly as good as usual. It’s drinkable but not recommended for what usually is a fantastic tea. I recommend a 3 minute steep and even up to 5 is fine.
