From Chawangshop

This is the highest Yunnan black tea production – hand made and highly selective process. Pleasant taste of Yunnan Hong Cha (black teas). The dry material – hairy aromatic small buds. Rich flavorful cup with lingering notes of honey and little spice, delicate and balanced. The soup is golden with pleasant aroma.

Very good tea for the Gong Fu tea ceremony. Early spring Yunnan black teas are quite rare and expensive, But they have many health benefits and a very delicious taste.

Thank you Chawangshop for this free sample!

Leaf Quality:
The tea was entirely comprised of golden, furry buds. Immediately upon opening the sample portion, I noticed a chocolaty aroma. The brewed leaves smelled sweet, malty, and chocolaty as well.

Brewed Tea:
The golden leaves created a golden-brown brew. The liquor didn’t have the usual reddish hue of black tea at all. The tea smelled just as the brewed leaves did: malty, sweet and chocolaty. There was a tiny floral hint to it as well. It tasted light, floral, and sweet with a chocolate finish. The malty notes were only present in the aroma.
Second Steeping
The second brew was more mellow than the first, and sweeter. The chocolate and floral notes were again present. This tea was not in the least astringent. With each sip, I started to notice the flavor of honey.

This was a great tea. It’s definitely not a breakfast tea, but can be enjoyed any time of the day.
