From Yunnan Sourcing

Many Taiwanese growers and tea masters have settled in Yunnan creating their own re-interpretations of Taiwanese teas using both Yunnan local varietals and high-altitude growing conditions. This tea which we call “Xue Dian Mei Lan” or “Snow Flecks, Plum Blossoms” was made in the style of a Taiwanese “Wen Shan Bao Zhong” (aka 文山包種), but using large-leaf varietal wild arbor tea leaves from Wu Liang mountain. While it is not entirely comparable in taste to a Taiwan Bao Zhong tea, this tea shares some of its aroma and brings to the table it’s own unique taste! When brewed it has a subtle plum blossom aroma and somewhat nutty sweet after-finish. The stems of the tea have been left to give it a special flavor. This tea is lightly oxidized, with a just the slightest degree of roasting Being a Yunnan varietal this tea can be infused many many times and has a shelf life of several years.

I’m glad I kept this one around to try again. I’m not saying it became a favorite but I can respect it better. The Tea definitely has that ‘Taiwan’ essence.

The best part about this tea is smelling the ‘tea caramel’, that drying liquid that thickens in the pitcher, it resembles honey and warm sugar with fruitiness, truly pleasant. The first steep is true of its scent, very sweet, mellow and fruity .The following ones resemble Oolong, slightly sweet, floral-bitterness and slight astringency. I think if you are looking for a different view on a green tea this is one to try. But it is a love OR hate situation so go for the samples at first. ;)
