Tongmu Bohea Organic Black Tea 2013

Tongmu Bohea Organic Black Tea 2013

Bohea (Boo-he) is the world’s first black tea created purely by the innovative tea farmers in the small Tong Mu village in Southeastern China. This certified organic tea comes directly from the original Lapsang Farm at Tongmu Village in the Wu Yi Mountains. This tea is made from young tea buds and fresh leaves creating a deep amber liquor and clean, sweet flavor known as longan, the trademark of Bohea tea. Most Asian palates prefer the its delicate flavor to the heaviness of the Lapsang Souchong, which is primarily consumed by the British. When this tea first came to the markets in Fuzhou during the end of the 17th century, the buyers were very interested in this new style of tea. When asked the name they were told it was “Wu Yi Cha” which they pronounced as Bohea.

    I love this tea. When I first opened it out came this smoky aroma which I didn't realize it had. I thought I may not like it. After a couple of cups, the flavor grew on me. Now, I crave this tea at times. It can be addicting!
