2016 Spring Ruo Gui red from Wenshan
Cultivar: Ruo Gui (from WuYi)
Harvest: April 26th, 2016
Origin: Wenshan, north Taiwan
Process: Fully oxidized whole leaves
The leaves from this new Ruo Gui plantation are very big and thick. The spent leaves are pretty whole and red. Their leaves are very big and have a shape that isn't common in Taiwan. This Ruo Gui cultivar comes from the WuYi mountains in Fujian. It's an experimental plantation aimed at creating more diversity of cultivars in Wenshan. The brew is red/orange with a very good clarity and transparency.
Dry: sweet scents of various sweet herbs and a light mint fresh note.
Brew: Black chocolate and red fruits like cherries.
Sweet, pure and thick taste with a long and mellow aftertaste.
Conclusion: These Ruo Gui red leaves are organically farmed and provide a very pure, sweet and thick red tea. This shows how important the cultivar impacts the aromas of a tea, even a fully oxidized red. This tea is of particularly high quality since it's a spring harvest (and the plantation is new).
