Pomelo tea

 

You Xiang You Hong is a unique Fujian black tea made from the rare Jin Mudan cultivar and scented with pomelo blossoms. Truly, this tea is one of a kind!

The tea, be it dry or steeped, is immensely aromatic. The tea's aroma will linger in your memories well after the session is completed. Tasting the tea brings notes of chestnut honey, pomelo blossoms, and long lingering cocoa. It starts sweet and stays sweet for many steeps.

If exotic black teas tickle your fancy, then definitely pick this tea: you will not be disappointed!
