2021 Zuhuo Bei Dou
From the February 2023 issue of the tea club.
In August 2021 we included a tea from my sister’s godmother, the Chunzhong Da Hong Pao, in the club. Her teas generally feature a suitable pairing of tea from a good location with an exquisite zuhuo roast and an unfortunately high price tag. The transition from medium roast to zuhuo is fairly easy to identify, the higher temperature creates a characteristic dried fruit fragrance on the dry leaves. I found this tea to be fairly versatile and can handle a range of brewing conditions.Note: Image is placeholder and not of this particular tea.
