From JK Tea Shop

This organic-certified black tea is directly from IMO organic-certifed tea base of Yunnan Fengqing Dianhong Tea Factory, which is famous for producing the highest quality Yunnan black tea. When Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II visited China in 1986, Deng Xiaoping-the chairman of central military commisionof China, sent the black tea from Dianhong tea factory as a gift to Queen Elizabeth II.

Speical & well-processd needle shape black tea, it enjoys high freshness and sweetness. For such high quality, it has little or no astringency at all; hence there is no need to add some sugar or honey to compensate the astringency; but still, if adding some pure milk, then the taste is more smooth and mellow, I will never forget the mellowness of this milk tea.

This classic 1958 black tea was firstly invented in 2006 by Dianhong factory, which carefully selected the high aroma big leaves variety in Fengqing tea bases. Its making process is different from the traditional Fengqing black tea. Classic 58 black tea, with straight, tight leaves and buds, with golden hair and high aroma. This tea enjoys very high, sweet aroma, but thick taste, long-lasting sweetness.

Even though I’m not the biggest on yunnan blacks, I ordered a sample of this tea from JK because I do like some (particularly Fengqing, like the black pearls) and I once read someone who drinks a lot of gongfu black tea said it was their favorite black tea. Since I was able to get a sample, I thought I’d give it a try. First trial western steeped, and I’ll do a gongfu session with it at some point.

Well it smells like a yunnan. A bit potatoey, a bit hay-ish. Not quite honeyed, not quite cocoa. The first sips are kind of bitter, but as I drink more the main body of the sip becomes sweeter. The bitterness creeps back in the aftertaste, but it is light. I may try this with less leaf, or less time. The flavor is more like an unrolled black pearl that the steeped tea initially smelled like. This cup is a bit “robust” for me, but otherwise I am relatively pleased with this tea.
