Hong Yun

from 3.87

Oxidation: 80-100%
Origins: Yu Chi Township, Nantou County
Country: Taiwan
Baking Level: None
Elevation: 800 Meters
Harvest: Summer 2015

This tea was picked in June, allowing the leaves to hold the most flavours from the winter.  The Hong Yun is a cross between the Kyang strain from India and the Qimen black tea strain from China. This has an outstanding intense aroma. Huge floral, strong honey, distinct fruitiness. This really has it all! You could sit around huffing this all day, wow!  Rare, and amazing Hong Yun that carries characters over from Taiwanese oolongs.
 
Initial Steeps:
Very intense aromatics. The fragrance almost glistens.  The complexity here is huge. Describing this in normal terms doesn’t really work, as the aromatic components are unified into something that is almost indescribable. Its floral, fruity, herbal, and minty but goes beyond the typical. The liquor is clear and brown, and smells faintly of floral honey. The flavor is very smooth.

Later Steeps:
Insane blend of aromas, coming off as slightly perfumed, again showing how integrated the fragrance is. The fragrance brings bright top notes and a mild low end making this an aroma junky’s dream black tea. The liquor is reddish brown with a mild fragrance off the surface. The brew is aromatically potent, leaving a lasting impression of the complex aroma with a really long, pleasant aftertaste.

It just keeps giving and giving. The floral and feminine flowery herbal tones combine with the minty back end really elevate the fragrance to a place that only high quality oolongs can go. An absolute show-stopper fragrance-wise.
