林老師傳統工藝 紅茶 2023 Autumn New Batch

After two years of bountiful harvests, the wild, ancient Bird King trees, cherished for their role in crafting traditional Master Red Tea, are now taking a well-deserved rest. In harmony with the rhythm of nature's cycles, we warmly invite you to savour this unique autumn harvest, an enchanting Master's Red with a classic Oolong twist. 

This autumn batch comes from young Mei Zhan trees, renowned for their contributions to some of the world's most celebrated Oolongs. After gently hand-rolling and oxidising the leaves - a classic oolong treatment, Master Lin meticulously guides these leaves through the red tea-making process based on his family tradition, transforming them into a tea that embodies a captivating fusion of aromas and flavours.

Prepare to enrapture your senses with the enticing scents of tropical fruits and blossoms while gardenia, peach, chestnut, and cacao unfold gracefully on your palate. The classic aftertaste of a Master's Red lingers, leaving your throat refreshed and your body contented. This tea promises a journey filled with joyous surprises and comforting warmth. May each sip delight you with a view of autumn’s miraculous beauty.

    Woodland warmth

    Like a woodland walk on an autumn evening. The undercurrent of long-ripened fruit, nut brown leaves and stewed berries, all encased in a warming, comforting tea.
    I found this tea more satisfying when using a high leaf to water ratio.

    Uplifting yet grounding

    This tea invites us to give it all our attention. Drinking it brought to mind passionfruit/peach like sweetness. The smell is uplifting yet grounding at the same time.
    Master’s Red has an energising quality without giving me the jitters (I’m quite sensitive to caffeine).
    I genuinely think this must be the nicest cup of tea I’ve ever had 😌 Thank you GPT

    If you don't like red tea, give this tea a try.

    This is a tea you just have to experience for yourself, so I'll be brief: I used to find red teas either boring or just... gimmicky (?) and the qi always felt hollow and harsh. Anyway, for a long time I stopped buying or even sampling red tea and mostly drank greens and shu.

    I tried Master's Red and now red teas are my daily go-to alongside ripe teas, and barely keep greens in stock :')

    So so grateful to Rui and Master Lin for introducing me to this ♥️
