Where To Buy: thepuriTea
If you’re a fan of Golden Yunnan then you’ll be a fan of her little cousin Hong Jing Luo. The name loosely translates into the golden soft downy feathers, its young loosely rolled black tea with golden tips is reminiscent of the finest Chinese black teas. Great morning tea to get you started with your day, goes well with milk or try it with brown sugar.
When I first read the product description on this one – it ‘had me at’ “If You’re A Fan Of Golden Yunnan…”
It just so happens that I am so I was excited to try this tea! I did two infusions while trying Hong Jing Luo by thepuriTea and here are my findings…
For the 1st infusion it tasted a little like cocoa and a rich-semi sugary. It reminded me of a Raisin-taste…almost like the raisins in a sugar cookie and CRISP. It has a very nice scent!
For the 2nd Infusion…
I smell…sweet potatoes, YES, Sweet Potatoes! It’s an interesting taste, indeed! Maybe more like sweet potatoes with brown sugar. And it’s still crisp and sweet! After the 2nd infusion cools for a few minutes (at room temperature) I can taste a slight woodsy yet sweet taste at the end of the sip and into the after taste.
This is a very unique cup of tea! That gets points in my book! And it tastes good too! VERY Memorable!
