Tongmuguan One - Tea Hong
Rare Quality Meizhan Hong Cha Not many black teas can achieve a smooth and full body. To have a floral, yet warm aroma with spicy sweetness and complexity of dried fruit would be a luxury.

And the great smell of the dry leaves too. This nostalgic, unique, freshly roasted Longjing olfactory delight…
