From Canton Tea Co

Hong Shui means ‘Red Water’, as the liquor is a deep dark red, almost like a fully oxidised black tea than an oolong. But it is an oolong, one that has been heavily roasted over a charcoal fire to produce a smooth, robust, sweet tea that stands up well to many reinfusions.

The flavour is rich, giving a full mouthfeel with notes of toasted almonds and sweet baked fruits. The aftertaste lingers long with flavours of nuts, honey and apricot. The flavours are complex but well-balanced, and would be an ideal companion to food as its robust character would complement many types of cuisine.

Great aromas! I just can’t place what it is. The flavors match. Really nice.

This is my first infusion of this tea, and I like it. It almost tastes like a black Darjeeling, but a bit smoother and well balanced. I’m looking forward to seeing what the next infusions bring
