Hong Qing

 

 A high-fire tea with a savory and intense vegetal taste.

The dark and glossy dry leaves reveal that Hong Qing was baked at high temperature. The taste goes along with the appearance; quite intense but neither burnt not charred, slightly grassy and with a distinguishing juniper flavor.
