Superior Bai Lin Gong Fu
Superior Bai Lin Gong Fu Black TeaOther names: Golden Needle Congou, Bai Lin Jin Zhen Congou, Ju Hong
We've tracked down the same high grade version that we had last year due to repeated requests from friends and customers who were hooked on it! If you haven't already experienced this delicious tea, it won the top accolade - 3 stars - in last years Guild of Fine Food Great Taste Awards and takes the naturally sweet, caramel flavours to a completely new dimension. The liquor is a bright golden brown and as you pour the tea, those distinctive caramel notes are released so the fragrance allows you to anticipate the flavour. The tiny, soft, dark buds are covered in delicate fuzzy orange hairs. It is one of the earliest (and best) Chinese black teas ever to be produced. Brew this Superior grade around 80° so the soft, subtle notes are coaxed out gently.
