This month's tea was originally going to be raw puerh but the weather did not cooperate so the leaves were made into a red tea instead. This particular type of tea is called Dian Hong. Dian is a nickname for Yunnan Province where this tea is made and Hong means red. Compared to the Golden Vajra from May, this one was sweeter with a more refined taste. Even though the weather has gotten much warmer I am still finding myself craving and loving darker teas.
I was enjoying my bowl of tea by the window when I caught a shot of a the clouds and blue sky in my teacup. Who knew that my cup of tea was also a reflecting pool?
Global Tea Hut just started doing videos to accompany each tea and magazine. I've embedded it below so that you can easily take a look :)
