From TeaSource

This black tea has a full and vibrant mouthfeel with savory, earthy flavors that will stay with you from dawn till dusk. Steep it strong for breakfast or nuanced in your gaiwan.

Red Dawn is made with a traditional oolong cultivar, Huang Jin Gui (or known to the locals as Huang Dan = “yellow morning”), but is heavily oxidized into what we would recognize as a black tea – or which the Chinese refer to as a “hong cha” (“red tea”). This is a trend that started in Taiwan (popularized with “Ruby 18”) and is now being explored in China as well. This tea goes through a unique step in the process – after rolling the leaves, the tea is wrapped in wet cloth bundles and allowed to oxidize in the sun, creating its own micro-climate inside. This change from the more traditional methods of oxidation create a tea that is both familiar, but with new intensity that makes it easy to say nice things about it. Red Dawn was made by Mr. Lin Rui Fu on March 22nd 2020 in Luo Yan village, Anxi county, Fujian province.

#tiffanys2021sipdown Tea #54 overall / Tea #21 for February

Sunday 2/14 — I am not a black/rooibos/white fan (more of a oolong/green/herbal fan) but my boyfriend got a SCOBY for Christmas so we started making kombucha. This was a sample bag(6 grams) from last fall (2020) Virtual Tea Festival. This is the one I brewed the night of 2/14 when my boyfriend requested a new plain hot black tea for our kombucha… nice way to easily sipdown a tea I’d normally just pass over when I have 1032492834823408324 different teas.

The first few steeps are honey-like, sweet and thick for a black tea; later on the texture and flavor lighten, becoming thinner but remarkably floral. I’d recommend this to someone who likes second-flush Darjeeling. I could also see it making a great mocktail with ginger ale and rosewater.
