From Ten Ren Tea

Yunnan is a region in China known for producing excellent black tea. Yunnan black is famous for its fat golden buds and Ten Ren’s 1st Grade Yunnan Black Tea has a high concentration of these golden buds.

Tea brewed from Ten Ren’s 1st Grade Yunnan Black Tea has a reddish brown color. The aroma is strong sugary and floral with a slight roasted undertone. The taste is smooth and sweet and the aftertaste is refreshing and clean.

The water used to steep this tea should be at the boiling point, 212°F (100°C). Use about 2 teaspoons (3 grams) of tea leaves for about every 5 ounces (150 milliliters) of water. A steeping time of about 3-5 minutes with more or less time is recommended depending on the desired concentration. Net tea weight 4 ounces and shipping weight 0.28 lb.

Thanks for another delicious tea Anna :)). My tea experience did not coincide with the description of the tea, so this review will be continued. My luncheon cup was steeped as shown below. Dry leaf is very tippy, and smelled earthy to me. Wet leaves smelled earthy, and woody, and like roasted marshmallows, so there was a definite sweetness noted. Cup color was very dark brown-muddy brown, with an earthy sweetness in the nose. Flavor was very smooth, filling my palate with earthiness and mushrooms. I was wondering if the sweetness of wet leaf aroma would excite my taste buds, but if it was there I didn’t taste/sense it.

I forgot my leaves a little in my second cup and steeped for 4.5 min. Cup color was darker and sweet in the nose. Flavors were the same as my first cup, but deeper. I was surprised by the sweetness of the wet leaves, and I really enjoyed the earthy, liquid mushrooms in my cup! This tea is smooth and delicious, and I really don’t believe it can be oversteeped. This is tea I could drink quite often, not every day, but I don’t drink any tea every day.
