From CHA YI Teahouse

This black tea is produced on the east coast of Taiwan by Mrs Wu, who has been awarded several times for the quality of her teas. A pleasure for the taste buds, Mi Xiang Hong Cha has aromas of honey, peach and muscat. Lighter in tannins, it is clearly distinguishable from Indian and Chinese black teas. A tea that will make you see black teas in a new light!

This tea is from spring 2020. The curly leaves still have some give to them, which testifies to its freshness. I steeped 6 g of leaf in a 120 ml teapot at 195F for 10, 12, 15, 18, 20, 25, 30, 40, 50, 60, 90, 120, and 240 seconds.

The dry aroma is of honey, cocoa, and stonefruit. The first steep features honey, raisins, malt, muscatel, and peach. The second steep adds plum and more peach and muscatel, making it a jammy peach/raisin combination. This tea just keeps getting fruitier. In the third and fourth steeps, the stonefruit really takes off and the plums/peaches balance the grape/raisin notes. The honey and faint malt bring it all together. Steep five sees a return to the raisin/grape notes, and honey, malt, wood, and slight tannins gradually take over as the session goes on. The final steeps have notes of honey, wood, tannins, and minerals.

The love child of Doke Black Fusion and a black Dan Cong, this is a fantastic tea. If it has one fault, it’s that the stonefruit disappears too quickly, but the remaining steeps are still tasty and interesting. I’m glad I picked this one up.

Such a pleasure to see your enjoyable, intelligent reviews again.

Leafhopper

Thanks! I’m hoping to get to 200 reviews while the site is still usable. (Or maybe I’m panicking over nothing and IE will continue to be supported.)

White Antlers

Better safe than sorry, right? : )

Leafhopper

Exactly! It’s also an excuse to break into some of the expensive teas I’ve been hoarding.

White Antlers

Good for you! Take it from an old lady-don’t hoard the good stuff!
