"This one has captured me. Balanced, rich, slightly sweet, a touch of minerality, a touch of umame. What all Chinese red tea should be."

"I've been ordering this for years - because it's so good and very unique. Hard to describe the flavor, but it's mellow and full. Best without milk, a little sugar is OK. Brew it for 4:00-4:15 - no more or it loses something."
