Tea Review: Golden Tian Hong (Perennial Tea Room)

Golden Tian Hong
Perennial Tea Room
Type: Black
Origin: China, Yunnan Province, Fengquing Tea Garden
Product Description: Long pine needle style China Yunnan black tea - roasty grain nose, cocoa undertones.

Temperature: 208° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaves have an aroma of aged wood and grains and a hint of grape.

The amber red infusion has a rich aroma of plums, cocoa, and a hint of roasted vegetables.  The taste is rich and earthy with notes of cocoa, a hint of fruit, moderate astringency and a dry fruity finish.

While the full character is in the first steeping, a second steeping produced a slightly less nuanced yet still enjoyable flavor and aroma.
