From TeaSource

These fine, delicate, golden leaves from 2018 produce a cup that is wonderfully fragrant and a flavor that is sumptuous, rich, thick, dark, and molasses-y. It lingers on the tongue long after you’ve swallowed.

This tea was grown and made in Anhua County, Hunan Province, China.

I’ll be honest, there were two reasons I bought this: 1) it was on sale and 2) I really liked the name; in the way that I could say “I’m drinking Mr. Wang’s Hu Hong”.

Well, after sampling Mr. Wang’s Hu Hong, I’m definitely satisfied with this stuff. It’s a good quality black tea – I get flavors of malt, barley, potatoes, leaves, and a tinge of caramel/brown sugar. A nice full body too (thicc). Good for at least two steeps.

A quality black tea, very good but it’s normally pricey. Get Mr. Wang’s Hu Hong on sale if you can because I’m not sure it’s worth the normal price. That lowers the rating into a “buy it on sale” level.

I’m always a sucker for a good Chinese black tea, so when this one was deeply discounted at TeaSource, I had to give it a try. No regrets, because this tea is delicious! The dry leaf is so pretty: tiny, delicately twisted golden leaves with a rich molasses aroma. The flavor is smooth and full-bodied with notes of malt and sweet potato. No bitterness or astringency at all and it re-steeps beautifully. Kinda wishing I’d grabbed more than 2oz in the sale!
