Tea Review: Fu Tea (Xiangyi Fu Tea)

Fu Tea
Xiangyi Fu Tea/湘益茯茶
Type: Heicha
Origin: China, Hunan Province
Product Description: Not Provided.

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

The dry leaves have an aroma of peat moss and bark.  

The copper red infusion has an aroma of earth and lotus root with a taste of earth and wood and a mildly tangy finish.

As with most heicha, this tea can be resteeped many, many times.  I steeped the second infusion at a slightly higher temperature of 208° F which seemed to bring out a more tangy taste.
