This is a younger version of 2017 Lightly-oxidized Shai Hong tea. We decided to sell it separately since its taste is quite different.

This Shai Hong is made as delicately as possible: withering, rolling (bruising so that the juice comes out) and immediate drying in the sun. The oxidation of leaves occurs while drying.

Here you will find vibrant floral tones, dry herbs mixed with tart tropical fruits and some chocolate notes. Among the fruit aromas, peach and apricot are most distinguished.

The steeped leaves demonstrate the very unique light oxidation that is rarely found in Chinese blacks: olive flashes inherent in shengs are found among the dark chestnut oxidized sheets. Due to this aspect, the tea may remind of Indian light Darjeeling, but it remains a very unique kind, with excellent storage potential - for those who like to observe the transition of taste from fresh fruit to dried fruit tones.

Tea is soft but deeply relaxes and warms, due to the old tree's origin. Saturates with a tea state, as classical black teas and aged quality shengs can do.
