Banten Red Tea


Red Tea is most commonly referred to as Black Tea in Western culture, but PT Harendong has crafted this fine tea to demonstrate the true nature of Red Tea as it is known in China. The reddish copper tint of the dry leaf brews a bright red liquor. Its robust and rich flavor shows the difference between Red Tea and English-style Black Tea. It has a rich flavor with a refreshing sweetness. Be cautious to brew lightly because this fully oxidized tea can easily be oversteeped.

How To Brew

Use 2 grams (1/2 tablespoon dried tea leaves) for 8 fl. oz. water in your favorite teapot or infuser (use bottled drinking water for best flavor, let boil and sit to cool slightly for 2-3 minutes). Steep for 2-3 minutes or for a shorter period of time if you would like to taste the subtle flavors of the tea. Leaves may be infused at least 3 times. This tea may too strong to enjoy if oversteeped.

These are suggested brewing instructions. We encourage you to experiment and share your own brewing methods as you continue to grow in the tea culture. If you're new to tea this is a good way to start.
