The 2021 Early Spring "Xiao Zhong - Gui Yuan Wei" is an exceptional A+++ grade Souchong black tea from the renowned tea-producing region of Fujian.
This exquisite tea is crafted from the finest tiny tea buds and young leaves, resembling needles in their delicate, slender shape.
These carefully selected leaves are notable for their golden tea hairs, a hallmark of quality and careful processing.
This feature not only adds to the visual appeal of the tea but also plays a significant role in its flavor profile.
Upon infusion, the tea releases a captivating longan-like fragrance, a unique characteristic that sets this blend apart.
The aroma is a perfect prelude to the delightful longan-infused flavor that follows, offering a natural, sweet fruitiness that complements the depth of the black tea.
The "Xiao Zhong - Gui Yuan Wei" is renowned for its smooth and thick texture, creating a pleasant mouthfeel that is both satisfying and indulgent. Each sip offers a luxurious experience, enveloping the palate with its rich and full-bodied character.
In essence, this tea is a celebration of the meticulous art of Fujian tea-making, blending traditional techniques with innovative flavors. The combination of the longan essence with the high-quality black tea base creates a harmonious and memorable drinking experience, making it a prized choice for tea connoisseurs and enthusiasts alike.
I love this so much I adopted it for my daily breakfast. Smooth, rich flavor, a tiny bit fruity with an excellent balanced body. I even started buying some for my friends. I strongly recommend this if you like unsmocked Xiao Zhong.
