I was really looking forward to this, because everything I’ve had from Anteaques in the past has been amazing. Unfortunately, however, this Yunnan tasted of almost nothing. It was like drinking hot water, except for the progressively drying effect on my tongue.
An extravagant China Yunnan tea (also called dian hong tea). Classified as a golden flowery orange pekoe (GFOP) it has an exquisite, mildly earthy, sweet taste and a brassy orange colour.
This tea is named after the Chinese province of Yunnan. It is distinguished from other Chinese black teas by the characteristic rich earth tones in the flavour. The unique soils of the tea growing areas of Yunnan are thought to be responsible for this fascinating flavour.
