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.
