Formosa Shui-Sa-Lian red tea from Hou De

Time for the next tea.

I used 5g of leaf, which was 1/2 the gaiwan. After a rinse, I brewed it for 15s, 30s, 60s, 120s.

I was going to write tasting notes for each infusion, but they all came out pretty much the same, so I'll just make it into a general description. It

It is kind of refreshing after trying the purple one. It's another fruity black tea that reminds me of Indian red teas. There is definitely some malty sweetness in this tea. The malty sweetness comes out even more in the aftertaste.

It might just be that anything tastes good after the purple one, but I actually enjoyed this tea.
