This tiny garden is home to a treasure trove of teas, each made in very small quantities. This one is a delicious autumn flush, whose name refers to the red-hot colour of the leaves and buds, caused by an intense oxidation process.
This autumn tea reveals delightful rose notes, blended with gentle fruity and honeyed fragrances that treat the palate to an endlessly smooth texture.
