Golden Buddha | Black Tea
Description: These long, handmade black tea leaves from Fujian produce an aroma that is sweet and rich. The cup is very complex, yet very balanced: smooth, strong, sweet, and fragrant with a pronounced and lingering black licorice/spicy note.
This tea is from a new cultivar (Mingke 1) developed by the Fujian Tea Research Institute and just released in 1999. This particular lot is made by Mr. & Mrs. Tang of Xiamen, Fujian, who are both graduates of Fu’an Tea School. The school is affiliated with the Fujian Tea Research Institute. This tea is grown at about 2400' elevation and is produced in Anxi County, Fujian.
