Heavily oxidized at 90 percent, this Hong Cha ("red" tea in China) is categorized as a black tea. Made from a Mi Lan Xiang (Honey Orchid) cultivar in Guangdong, the result is a deep, honey-like flavor. Notes of crème brûlée and brown sugar may come to mind as you continue to sip. 

For a lighter brew, use half of the coin (Rosewood Tea Knife recommended for breaking in). For a fuller brew, use full coin. Rinse with boiling spring or filtered water, then steep for up to 45 seconds. Good for multiple steeps.
