Tea Review: Zheng He Gong Fu (Mad Hat Tea Company)

Advent Tea Calendar Day 26

Zheng He Gong Fu
Mad Hat Tea Company
Type:  Black
Origin:  China
Product Description:  Not provided.

Temperature: 202° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaves have a floral, nutty, spicy, honey aroma.

The orange-red infusion has an aroma of honey and nuts with light floral notes.  The taste is sweet and honey-like with a long sweet finish.

This tea provided full-bodied, delicious results through three steepings without a noticeable weakening of either flavor or aroma.  I was pleasantly surprised to encounter this black tea with little or no astringency and the results reminded me just a little of dessert.
