Jiu Qu Hong Mai or 9 Bends Red Plum is a famous red tea (black tea in the west) from Zhejiang province that was first developed in 1926. It is produced in the same area and often by the same farmers that make Dragon Well Long Jing green tea. For this tea they pluck one bud with 1-2 tender leaves. Its dark leaves are long, thin and twisted and taste light, sweet and fruity with a rich, thick and oily mouthfeel.

In the West, Lapsang Souchong is a term that is generally associated with a powerful smoky tea. Lapsang Souchong (Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong) originated in the WuYi mountains and it is widely considered the very first black tea (or read tea is China). Traditionally it was not heavily smoked as a post-production step but carefully processed in a 4 story house (Qing Lou) with a pine fire on the ground floor lending a subtle and elegant smokiness.

Made from authentic wild and semi-wild Assam trees brought by Japanese to Sun Moon Lake before WWII! Seed propagated trees have space to grow and a symbiotic relationship with local ecology (plants, insects, animals, bacteria). Normally this would be considered a red tea (black in the west) but this tea is more like an oolong as they halved the withering/piling and rolling period, leaving the leaves greener and with more powerful Qi.
This particular batch was hand-rolled and made with leaves that were bitten by the same insect that makes Oriental Beauty so special. You will find this Assam Sun Moon Lake “Elevation” sweeter than previous batches because of this.
We recommend putting just a few leaves in a bowl and drinking as bowl tea. Handles multiple infusions!!!
