A TeaSource Exclusive! 


Younger, stronger, bolder. A heavier cup with excellent mouthfeel, but still retains that sweet, sugary (peach), aromatic character. In our top five best teas for the buck.


This tea was harvested on March 16, 2021 and finished production on March 20, 2021. The material comes from from the tea fields of Mr. Lin Rui Fu in Anxi County, Fujian Province (for more teas by Mr. Lin, click here). It’s a 1 bud, 3 leaf plucking standard from the Huang Jin Gui cultivar growing at 2,400 feet.

The idea for Red Dawn came from our friend Daniel Hong in 2020 during Covid lockdown and is now a continuous experiment we plan to purchase in years to come.  This is a TeaSource exclusive tea you won’t find anywhere else.

We are now carrying two lots of this tea, 2020 Red Dawn and 2021 Red Dawn. Each can be purchased separately. There is very limited supply of 2020 Red Dawn available at this time.

All 4 oz. packages of 2021 Red Dawn have custom packaging featuring the "Red Dawn" artwork by YoYo!
