Like a cross between a taiwanese black and a mellow georgian black, but maltier and woodier. With a sweet after taste. This is definitely a good one. I’m currently exploring hongcha from different terroirs and processing – a total of about 40 different hongcha over the next few months – and I definitely want to try the spring flush from this estate now.
I brewed this western style, 2.5g for 2.5 minutes in 300ml of water just off the boil. Will try it gongfu next, as per recommendations from the estate.
Flavors: Malt, Mineral, Molasses, Wood
