This was the first Yunnan that I had ever tasted and immediately became one of my favourites. I owe my love of Yunnan blacks to this tea. I still have a little bit of this to finish off and it’s been hard to re visit it incase it just isn’t what I remember it to be. I have tasted so many fine Yunnans that I’m afraid this will become meagre in comparison and I feel it still deserves a place in my heart.
A nice man called Philip is fixing my back gate after someone broke into my garden and completely busted the gate down in the process. Hopefully when I have enough money next year to buy a place it will be far away from this neighbourhood.
I’m pleased to say that this tea still holds up pretty well. It’s got the rich malt Yunnan taste but there is also a sweet, honeyed quality to this blend. Something that I could still drink every day. :)
Long live the Yunnan Jig.
