1. View

The leaves are small and thin. The spent leaves are whole and red with shades of dark green, which shows that the leaves are not completely oxidized. The brew is red/orange with a very good clarity and transparency.

2. Scents

Dry: sweet scent of caramel and some lighter scents than for the Hualian red Da Yeh.

Brew: complex spicy scents that remind me of a light Indian curry. There are also honey and red fruit scents, but they feel lighter.

3. Taste

Sweet taste and lighter, finer aftertaste.

Conclusion: These high mountain leaves have been slightly less oxidized to preserve their mountain freshness and lightness. This spring red tea contains buds and small leaves, which explain the refined flavors. (Most cheaper red teas are harvested in summer and have bigger leaves). The roast adds sweet notes to the honey flavors and ensures this is a tea that can be kept for a long time.
