Hong Yun translates to "red charm," which refers to its vibrant red color and the pleasing effect of its elegant tannin structure transforming into a harmonious sweetness in the aftertaste. Indeed, the term "Yun" has connotations of musical harmony in Chinese, and we find that the notes of muscat grape, medjool date, dark honey, and pine resin play together symphonically in this micro-lot selection of Hong Yun 21.

Guywan Brewing from Rishi Tea on YouTube.
For the best infusions, we recommend brewing this tea in a Guywan
We encourage you to experiment with the quantity of tea leaves and the length of the steep time to find your desired brew strength. Varying the water temperature isn't recommended, as water that is too hot will over-extract the bitter components of tea, while water that is too cool might not fully draw out the aromas and flavors of tea.
