Wu Yi Mountain, fermented tea, reminiscent of Lapsan Souchong

from 10.40

Name: Wu Yi Mountain, fermented tea, reminiscent of Lapsan Souchong

Variety: Fermented and aged black tea

Origin: Lu Ye, Taiwan

Tea maker: Lien Chi Tea Garden

Harvest: not specified

Probably this was how Lapsan Souchong tea tasted when it was first introduced in Europe.  In addition to the standard oxidation, fermentation and roasting, tea leaves are smoked to add some pine smoke flavor.  When brewing this tea, the sweet and smokey and bit spicy aroma fills the air.

Brewing suggestion:

Brew with: 3g (2 tea spoon) tea with 200ml water

1st infusion: at 95 C rinse quickly, keep the tea water if you like to add.  But, has bit sharpness, just add a little to the other brew... But, has nice aroma.    

2nd infusion on (up to 5 times or more): at 95 C for 2 1/2 min    

*3rd and 4th infusion are the best!  You can lower the temperature to 90C and brew longer at 3min or 3 1/2 min.
