drank Yunnan Jin by The Tao of Tea
12 tasting notes

Just absolutely incredible. So so good. It has all the rich chocolatey flavors of a new jin cha, but all these flavors are much deeper and smoother with age. The taste just lingers and lingers in your mouth. This is hands down my favorite black tea. Every time I drink it I can’t help but shout “YUM” repeatedly.

I usually brew this gongfu style in a gaiwan as it’s delicious for at least 4 infusions.

Did you really drink this tonight in hot weather? Just wait till Thursday, it’s supposed to dip to the 60’s…no kidding.
30 degree dip should make this tea really outstanding!!!
I love a good black tea too!

No, tonight I’m drinking Be Well to fend of this sore throat I’ve got. I had just been meaning to write about this one for a long time sine I love it so much. It helped that the first time I had it was in Portland, OR, the land of perpetual tea weather.
