In my time tasting teas, I found the qimen category to be the hardest tea to find something special in. For such a vast making region with so many making styles, the profile of Qimen tends to be pretty consistent with no single tea offering something clearly different, until now. 

Opening this tea you are greeted with an around that is softer and more lively than most qimens. While most Qimens tend to have a harder and heavier aroma, this qimen's aroma has a soft brightness that is as enjoyable to smell as a boquet of flowers. There is a suppleness to the aroma which is the first sign that this qimen is different and you will probably find yourself smelling if a few times before you even take it out of the bag. 

Once brewed you will immedietly taste the difference in this tea versus other qimens, its all in the body. Most qimens have an upfront mouth feel; bold sometimes a little heavy, They are forward and brass with their flavors. This qimen stays softer in the mouth. It has a body similar to a Huang Shan Mao Feng consisting of flowers and umami. There is a touch of malt and that classic Qimen flavor, but that too is woven into its soft body and is less demanding than other Qimens.  

This Qimen red tea (black tea) is the personifcation of easy drinking ability. The unique body naturally leaves your mouth refreshed and comfortable after drinking. The aroma lingers for a moment allowing you to enjoy even when your cup is empty. This tea can be analyzed and appriecated for its small characterstics and complexities, or it can be enjoyed while you talk with friends. Full focus is not needed to enjoy this wonderful Qimen and the expirence it will bring you.
