Black tea (红茶): Nannuo Shan Hong Cha (南糯山红茶）
A black tea (红茶) that will surprise you as much by its sweetness as by its strength of character. Unlike many black teas, this one has little potential for bitterness. Round on the palate and sweet while keeping the intense and spicy side of black teas, it is an ideal tea for the cold season.
This Chinese tea comes from Mount Nannuo (南糯山) in Menghai County (勐海县). This county is part of the Xishuangbanna Autonomous Prefecture (西双版纳傣族自治州) in Yunnan Province (云南).
The producer of this tea is Mr. San Er (散二). He lives with his wife, son and parents in the village of Zhu Lin (竹林村), one of the many small villages on the slopes of Mount Nannuo.
