Review of Crimson Lishan

8 of 105 of 55 of 597 of 100

Brewing style: 4g leaf in 80ml gaiwan at 212°F/100°C

Steam-damp leaf aroma is cassia spice & malty raisin.

The infusion maintains these notes, golden & complex, with a strong energy lingering in the throat. Broth is lightly astringent & medium bodied, with a slight honey viscosity. Warming & grounding. If black tea & oolong had a love child, it would be this tea. Unique & worth the price. This is one of my current favorites!
