cantonteabailinThis is a Chinese black tea that was grown in the Fujian Province. The dry leaves were a mottled brown color and had a fine, curly appearance. They had a very pleasant earthy smell to them. I made this tea in a porcelain gaiwan using 212 degree water and three consecutive 40 second infusions. The liquor was a deep red color that was almost translucent.

The first infusion of this tea was sweet and nutty tasting with hardly any bitterness. The second took on a pleasant maltiness that reminded me of a good quality Assam. The third was just as enjoyable and had not lost any of its strength. Very few black teas lend themselves well to the gong fu style of brewing but this one suits it perfectly. I would definitely recommend this tea.
