Little Red Tangerine
Little Red Tangerine is a very light and intriguing black tea from Tong Mu Village in Wuyi Mountains of Fujian Province, China. This is the area where black tea was originally produced, so the levels of expertise, heritage, and skill are very high. We met the tea maker on a recent trip to China and were able to see first hand the bushes and the equipment he uses. The area is truly pristine.
The taste in unlike any other black tea we have tried. There is no astringency. The tea is gentle and sweet, mildly reminiscent of tangerines or mandarines.
