Tea Review: Red Dawn (Encore Chocolates & Teas)

Red Dawn 
Encore Chocolates & Teas and TeaSource
Type: Black
Origin: China, Fujian Province, Anxi County, Luo Yan Village
Product Description:
This black tea has a full and vibrant mouthfeel with savory, earthy flavors that will stay with you from dawn till dusk.  Red Dawn is made by Mr. Lin Rui Fu in Luo Yan village, Anxi county, Fujian province.
 Temperature: 208° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaf aroma has notes of dried fruits, wood, whole grains, and citrus.

The bright orange infusion has an aroma of apricot, dark bread, nuts, and caramel.  The taste is sweet and savory, with a smooth mouthfeel and notes of nuts, stone fruit (I noted apricot), and a hint of caramel.  

The first infusion was almost tart, immediately giving way to sweet and savory notes with no notable astringency. While the first infusion was the most flavorful, the development in flavor and aroma with subsequent infusions was very enjoyable.  

This tea was purchased by me.
