From Lazy Cat Tea

Tea- Black Tea (Not Smoked)
Harvest – Spring 2018
Origin – Tongmuguan, Wuyishan

This tea was produced in Tongmuguan, birthplace of black tea in the 16th century and now a Unesco world heritage protected area where tea trees grow in a pristine environment. Unlike most areas of Wuyishan that are at relatively low elevation, Tongmuguan is situated at a much higher altitude of around 1000mt.

The traditional production of this tea is smoked and is available as Yan Xun Xiao Zhong.
This non smoked version produces a very clean flavor expressing the character of Tongmuguan Xiaozhong. Growing in semi-wild conditions (left to grow style), these trees have to adapt to the environment and produce irregular and ugly leaves with a quite peculiar flavor.

This tea has a balanced taste with a very clean, delicate sweetness and a smooth and cozy mouth feeling. It is low in fragrance and a bit different in taste compared to most chinese hongcha/black tea. The tea soup is a lighter shade not reaching the deep red color. Its qualities are in the balance of flavor and in the soft mouth feeling.

To get an idea of the differences in Xiaozhong taste we can suggest to try our Hongcha Tasting box.
