This is a spherical, well oxidized and medium roasted oolong tea.

Hong Shui, which means literally “red water” oolong, is a quite rare Thai tea with high level of oxidation and of medium fire. It is produced from the specially selected leaves of Ruan Zhi and Jin Xuan cultivars. Tea farmers that have found such a good technology of tea processing do not disclose the criteria of the selection. Leaves are rolled into dark-brown, almost black balls and they have a strong, captivating sweet smell. Brewing them you must appreciate the infusion - it has really ruby, cherry red color. This oolong possesses full-bodied and complex taste, spicy and slightly tart flavor with wooden notes. Distinctive fruity berry tones are in the foreground. Aftertaste hints of hazelnut. Somebody can compare Hong Shui oolong with red Gaba tea, but anoxic oxidation technology is not used in production process for Hong Shui.

Hong Shui oolong wonderfully combines the best from classic red and oolong teas. In addition to its remarkable taste, it has a noticeable healing effect - improves thyroid function, stimulates gastrointestinal tract, strengthens the immune system and also brings harmony and peaceful state of mind. USDA Organic tea.

This is a real rich highly fermented Oolong from 2014. Extremely fruity notes, currants, raisins, cocoa, tobacco. Don't let the tea get cold! 1st steep was a opener to this multiple tastes, the second was clear and strong. This is one of my favorite Oolongs from TEASIDE!
