    Described by the teamaker as "a black tea with the spirit of an oolong", Qing Xin Red is our rarest black tea. This innovative harvest combines Taiwan's Qing Xin cultivar (revered for it's elegantly sweet, creamy, and floral taste), with mi xiang crafting and traditional oolong production techniques like rou nian to create one of the most balanced, refined black teas we've tasted.

    The full oxidation of this insect-bitten crop of Qing Xin leaves deepens their flavor, aroma, and finish, resulting in a tea with notes of citrus, bright florals, rich stone fruit, and a persistent honey-like finish. The flavor profile is similar to our Eastern Beauty, but with an even more elegant, complex, and balanced taste.

    This is our favorite way to brew most black teas, since the moderate water temperature and brew time increase sweetness and texture while limiting astringency. If you prefer a more intense brew, try increasing your water temperature. To further highlight sweetness (particularly with our mi xiang crops), reduce water temperature while increasing brew time.
