From the Fujian Province in South China comes this very popular black tea. Black teas from the south of China are often referred to as clarets because of their full-bodied winey flavor. The northern teas are considered burgundies. Ching Wo along with Keemuns has a deep full-body and makes excellent breakfast and afternoon tea. In China this tea is often referred to as "Mao's Long March Tea" believed to have sustained Mao Zedong as he made his way on the incredible 6000 mile journey across China in 1934. This tea has a rich coppery color with a complex winey flavor and a smooth mellow cup. We prefer this tea mid-afternoon when we so deserve a refreshing " pick-me-up". | Chingwo is similar to a Keemun.
