梅占红茶

Harvest
May 2020

Origin
Fengqing, Yunnan

Just landed - new harvest from 2020! It is outstanding and delicious - intensely sweet, floral, with notes of honey.

Meizhan is a varietal, known for its sweetness and fragrance, that originates from the Wuyishan region of Fujian. This varietal is typically made into oolongs, making this an experimental black tea.

In 1978, Fengqing Institute of Tea first brought the Meizhan trees from Wuyishan into Yunnan to research. After 30 years of experiments, they made a black tea that was highly aromatic. Mr. Du learned from these techniques and added his own touches to create this black tea — longer, slow oxidation times, low temperature, and slower roasting and drying process.

This tea is sweet, intensely floral with caramel notes.
