Ying Hong N°9
The Ying Hong N°9 big leaf cultivar was crossbred by a regional institute in the late 1950s to capture the most endearing elements of its native Guangdong’s Pearl River Delta terroir through the context of a black tea process. Ms. Tseng and Mr. Lin produce this lot completely free of agrochemicals, even using a proprietary, all-natural fertilizer blended on-site, rife with healthy microorganisms. The tea infuses a stark, vivid red and is full-bodied with structure, velvety smooth mouthfeel and a crisp, sweet finish. Notes of Caramel, Cacao Nibs, and Candied Strawberry.
