This Grand Cru is a Hong Cha - a black tea. However, this Chinese name actually means "red tea", in reference to the liquid's colour once it is poured into the cup. The Mi Xiang grade refers to the exceptional honeyed fragrances of this Grand Cru.

A round and sweet black tea with a fine complexity, which develops a bouquet of floral and honeyed notes, with hints of mint and vanilla.
