Ying De Jin Mo Hou
$15.00 – $46.00 — available on subscription
An outstanding black tea from Ying De of China’s Guangdong province displays an orange-gold cup and light, fruity, floral notes. This outstanding example of Ying De’s finest is beautiful to look at with immense amounts of golden tips and nicely shaped curls. When infused correctly it is a most pleasing experience that only black teas of this kind can produce.
Guangdong, China: The Eastern province of Guangdong, once known as Canton, is a subtropical region, strongly influenced from the moist air of the South China Sea. Here Oolong, Black, Puerh and Green teas are grown. Among Guangdong teas, Oolong from Wu Dong in the Feng Huang Shan (Phoenix Mountain) area is most highly regarded.
We suggest brewing this tea at just boiling water or below. We prefer it for short steepings, but it’s absolutely fabulous all on its own but we encourage you to experiment and find your own preference.
