Dian Hong Gong Fu (28g)
Organic Black Tea
The term "Gong Fu" refers to the time and skill required to produce unbroken black tea. While its history is short compared to other black teas (it was invented in 1938), it is becoming very popular for its rich, full bodied flavor and sweet aroma. Full and beautifully shaped, the large leaves of Dian Hong Gong Fu brew to a bright red cup color and a flavor strong enough to take milk or sugar but nuanced enough to be appreciated on it own.
