Organic Hong Songzhen (Pine Needle) Black Tea

Silky, sweet and pure taste with needle-like shape. Hong Songzhen, a kind of Yunnan black tea (Dian Hong for short), is made from one bud with one leaf of the Yunnan large-leaf ?Dayezhong? spring tea. The dry leaf is even and straight, much like a pine needle – or songzhen, where this tea gets its name. This is a Dian Hong tea, but it is slightly different from the Fengqing Dian Hong variety. Compared with tea of the same shape, like Yunnan Dian Hong Full-leaf black tea, the Songzhen’s dry leaves are thicker, and its golden tips are slightly reddish in color. After brewing, the tea liquid is particularly clear with a naturally sweet taste, while the Dian Hong full-leaf has a sweeter, more caramel-like taste. The most prominent part of this tea is its pure, clean taste, like sweet spring water from the mountains. This is a fairly light black tea, suitable for both beginners who want an easy introduction to Dian Hong as well as veteran tea-drinkers to enjoy a softer variety.
