Zhou Family Handmade Wuyi Da Hong Pao Loose Leaf Oolong Tea

A medium roast Yancha from Qin Shi in the Wuyi Mountains. Harvested in May 2018 from tea plants that are now about 40 years old, this tea carries a mellow, fruity flavour with blackcurrant notes and a rich roasted aftertaste. Da Hong Pao is one of China’s most famous teas.

Legend has it that this tea cured the mother of a Ming dynasty emperor from an illness, so he sent red robes to protect the bushes from which it originated.

Where is it from?:

Wuyi Mountain Fujian Province, China

A premium home-brewed coffee is still less expensive than a cafe

Issue: With the continuing economic uncertainty that COVID brings, many are choosing to tighten the purse strings and are replacing luxuries with cheaper, more basic products.For more: Comunicaffe International
...However, whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a premium home-brewed coffee or tea is still less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Many have already taken the time to improve their brewing skills since the outbreak, and so now have the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home. If this isn't you, then there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our range of independents to support you in doing just that. Easy to find and it won’t cost you the earth for these to be delivered.
