Tea Review: Hunan Black Mudan (Hunan Tea Group Co., Ltd)

Hunan Black Mudan
Hunan Tea Group Co., Ltd
Type: Black
Origin: China, Hunan Province
Product Description: Not provided.

Temperature: 208° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 1.5-3 minutes

The dry leaves have an aroma of aged wood and apricots or plums.

The bright red infusion has an aroma is rich with notes of baked fruit and honey.  The taste is moderately astringent with a long, dry, fruity finish.

Steeping for 3 minutes produced flavorful results.  A shorter steeping time of 1.5-2 minutes produced a sweeter aroma with fruit and wood-like notes and an intriguingly savory taste with notes of whole grains and fruit, mild astringency, and a fruity finish.

Hunan Tea Group is a tea exporter and at the time of this review this tea does not appear to be available to the retail market in North America.

This tea was provided as a free sample without guarantee of a review.
