From Feng Jie Tea

I took words from the Google translation to create an English version of the name of this tea (the translation is clunky). Here is the actual name from the website, in Mandarin : 包邮2014年春茶 滇红茶 满堂红 极品金丝单芽 工夫红茶叶100g盒
Production date: March 25, 2014 to March 29, 2014
For the ‘Company Name’ on Steepster I used the ‘Brand’ listed on Taobao: Feng Jie Tea (品牌: 凤杰茶叶).
I took what I thought was relevant from the translation on Taobao to create the description.

Section “Dianhong tea”, mainly single bud, bud fat, beautiful full Miao Feng, Jin revealed cents, color black oily, thick transparent red soup, thick heavy and mellow taste, smell and high long Securinega bright red uniform.

You see, I am a single bud, shapely, golden shiny and beautiful Miao Feng. I selected from the finest gold bud buds, and therefore meet the rich nutrients, very smooth taste.

Preliminary review

I believe this is the first tea I bought from Taobao that I have reviewed.

I used my 150ml easy-pour gaiwan with about 5 -6 grams of dry tea. Small amount of Stevia added.

This morning I opened the package and brewed it up. So far (we have done two steepings) it is everything I was expecting in a fresh dianhong. The dry tea is beautiful (although there is more black in the tea leaves than in the pictures) and aromatic (the tea in the package was brimming with freshness and smelled a lot like a fresh spring green tea). The tea liquor is not only flavorful but my wife and I both agree it is very smooth; there is some subtle ‘thing’ missing in the flavor that I have experienced in most Chinese read teas, something best left out: it is as if the flavor is unencumbered and can move freely and effortlessly about to surprise and delight me at will (I hope to nail this down a little better later). The tea liquor has a gorgeous caramel color, and it looks to me to have an oily texture (just as the description mentions). Glancing at the wet leaves, they seem to be predominately, if not completely, buds.

I had such a positive experience with Tea it inspired me to write about it. I plan to write more sometime later.

This is definitely a tea worth sharing with others.

Oh, and I love the tin it came in (it’s different than the one on the website).
