Today I am reviewing a 2020 Fox Down black tea from White2Tea.
Origin: Yunnan, China
Our new Fox Down is a Yunnan shai hong, sun dried black tea made from a bud heavy picking.
Amount of Tea: 7 Grams
Brewing Vessel: Ceramic Teapot
Type of Water: Bottled Water (Reverse Osmosis)
Rinse Time: 10 Seconds – 10 Seconds
Steep Time: 15 Seconds – 20 Seconds – 25 Seconds
Mineral forward, somewhat watery, malty-sweet black tea flavor.
It tastes of roasted malt, light cream, dark wood, brown sugar, and a dates.
Sweet, yet not overly complex.
Reasonable body and texture.
Flavor notes: Malt, cream, dark wood, brown sugar, and dates.
I am enjoying this tea with a few Royal Dansk butter cookies and they pair nicely together, as the tea cuts through the sweet and buttery flavor of the cookies.
