Red Dragon Black loose leaf tea from Yunnan, China 

Tasting notes - 1st infusion: 3 mins 

Preparation: 4g or 3tsp per 250ml; temperature of water - 100 C; brewing - 3 mins 

Colour: Translucent bronze

Aroma: Light sweet caramel aroma, tree bark 

Taste: Comforting roundness, a lovely combination of the aromas that leave the lasting impression in the mouth.

Tannin: Attractive, soft 

Comment: This is the perfect tea for a little self-indulgence and inner peace and pleasure. 


Tasting notes - 2nd infusion: 10 minutes 

Colour: Darker rich bronze 

Aroma: More pronounced woodiness, damp forest. A touch of brandy sweetness. 

Taste: Woody, sweet character combines with a bitter more extracted tannin. 

Comment: The second infusion for 10 minutes was much more full-bodied, pronounced flavour and tannic grip. This is the closer - satiety attained.
