Red Plum
Black tea, China

Malt, sweet spice, floral ~ lush & decadent
Red Plum is grown and crafted in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province in China. It is a unique tea as it is crafted from the Long Jing cultivar of the tea plant Camellia Sinensis, usually reserved for green tea.

Red Plum’s jet-black, slender leaves infuse into a medium bodied, rich and lush tea with decadent biscuity, sweet malt and chocolate notes reminiscent of caramel slice, alongside hints of baked plum, sweet spice and flowers. It is smooth in texture with a subtle and pleasant astringency. Spring 2021 harvest.

Preparation: Steep for 3 minutes at 100°. Two infusions.
