From New Mexico Tea Company

This Yunnan black (Dianhong) tea is a type of Chinese black tea, and is a high end gourmet black tea. When viewed from a distance, the golden tips appear bright orange in colour. The tea liquor is bright red in colour and exhibits a gentle aroma and a sweet taste.

The main difference between Dianhong and other Chinese black teas is the amount of fine leaf buds, or “golden tips,” present in the dried tea.

Oh, my. This is just wonderful. Lovely and malty with hints of cocoa. Strong and very smooth. A perfect tea to be snowed in with today.

Both glad and dismayed that I asked for this as my free sample. Glad because it can easily become a staple. Dismayed because it should easily become a staple. :)

Next up for today’s adventure in lots of tea since I can’t go anywhere is the regular Royal Yunnan from NM Tea. Try it in comparison to this one and see if I can tell a difference and if so, what one I’ll like better. I really need to spring for the gift tins from NM Tea on my next order. I love so much of their label artwork.

Off to shovel snow since we have a break in the storm for a few hours. Maybe I can get a path to the car and get the drive done in front of the car before it piles on more this evening. Then I’ll really want hot tea!!

How much did you get up there? Ours is all sleet, about 2".

Nicole

Hard to tell with all the drifting. News is saying 8 inches at the airport, I think, and we are about 10 miles south of that. Drifts were past my knees 2 hours ago. So at least 6 and I’m guessing significantly more. I’ll take 6 inches of snow over 2 inches of sleet. Sleet is just nasty. Though apparently the mayor has declared a state of emergency and they just can’t get things cleared. Tons of roads closed and the news was full of pictures of people just stopped on the highway and off the shoulders.

It’s heading our way tonight. I think we are supposed to get ice pellets. Kind not sorry I don’t have to get out in it tomorrow. First perk I’ve seen from being let go.

Nicole

Blech. Ice is so rotten. I’m not sure I’ll go in tomorrow either. I’m needing to save my vacation time, but since I made up a lot of time early in the week it would only be 8 hours…

Good luck with the ice and stay safe.

First infusion (1 minute, 160): Nice malty and caramel flavors, no detectable bitterness or astringency. I highly recommend this temperature.

Second Infusion (1 minute 15 seconds, 160): Lighter malt but resilient caramel flavors.

Third Infusion (1 minute 30 seconds, 160): Weak flavor, two infusions are probably sufficient.

Overall, a decent tea with light but obvious flavors. The leaf isn’t very resilient but this is forgivable for a black tea. This tea could be considered the sweeter version of the NM Tea Co Royal Yunnan. This tea has less of a smoky profile and much more caramel and malts.

Flavors: Caramel, Malt

Since I moved to NM, I try to visit this shop whenever possible. Got this tea as one of my samples. I always like the golden colour of the leaves. There is a scent of cocoa, and hints of yams. The flavour is sweet, and a bit malty. It’s smooth, mild, and very good.

Flavors: Cocoa, Malt, Yams
