From Yunnan Sourcing

This exquisite black tea is made from last flush October harvest. Simao area pure bud material. Picked when the tea is still just tender little buds, the tea is processed with great care to produce this lovely rolled Bi Luo Chun Black tea.

The taste is potent but smooth with hints of sugarcane and milk chocolate!

For best results we recommend using about 4 to 5 grams per 100ml of water when brewing.

Early October harvest!

When I feel like having something new, I just fetch a pouch from my Terri Box.

She generously sent me what she had left of this precious tea. Delicious little tiny golden snails, so pretty to look at.

Of course, I was curious to compare them to Whispering Pines’s “wee snaily yums” Golden Snail Yunnan Black, already a favourite.

They do look identical, but are completely different in taste. Though I much prefer WP version, this is still yummy, no doubt.

What surprised me the most was to find some smoke in there. Don’t know if my taste buds are playing tricks on me but it’s very noticeable. In a Keemun kind of way.

It’s sweet, but it’s missing that silky barley sugar feel I get from WP.

It’s fuller bodied and maltier, not as delicate and complex. I’m missing the floral and spicy notes I find in WP.

To me, it feels like a good robust black tea, which is something I would seek early in the morning. Just not what I was expecting from what is supposed to be a more mellow and smooth kind of tea.

Maybe I over leafed? Luckily, I still have plenty to try it again.

So yes, compared to WP’s Bi Luo Chun, it looses the battle.

But as a nice breakfast tea, it’s a winner, loved it!

Thank you so much Terri Harlady for giving the chance to try so many teas from Yunnan Sourcing :-)

This is Autumn tea so it has a little diff profile. Also it aged, so probably new flavors developed as it aged. I want to age some of my YS teas to see the difference.

It’s Wee Snaily Yums’s cousin – Teensy Snaily Yums!

I really want to try this one! Will definitely order it when I get around to YS…

TheTeaFairy

Sars, can’t help yourself right? I do the same every time :-)

Boychik, It could be the reason, the difference is HUGE!

Haha! Yes Cameron, totally Teensy :-)

Sarsonator

No, I’m sorry.

I just adore snail teas. :)

Hey, a girl is allowed to let loose at the end of the her day….

What’s on your sipping menu tonight?

Sarsonator

I am currently drinking the GTT Honey Black! Round 2! Writing it up now.

I am leaving soon to go babysit my (alomost) 3 year old nephew, so I figured I could use a little black tea energy!

TheTeaFairy

Oh! Yes little boys need to play!!! I know what it’s like, my godson just turned 4, precious boy :-)

TheTeaFairy

OMG he’s adorable, awwww!!!!!

Ok, here’s my little guy, he’s also my nephew:

mmmm thanks for sharing this one with us Terri! I’m trying to kick my morning off right and get in a few delicious cups of tea before i’m stuck with trying to find a few mins tonight to brew up more. I’m onsite at work from 10am to 5am so i need my good tea vibes. While i’ve enjoyed this one a bunch, i’m not sure it’s something i need to keep in stock in my cupboard. there are a few other from YS that i’ve enjoyed a lot more via my tea sister. that being said, this is still a really enjoyable cup of tea!

This has been a delightful tea. I’m mostly enjoyed it gongfu style, but today I tried a more western version, basically a heaping tsp in a cup for 3 min with a resteep of 5min. Also very delicious this way, & without a doubt, I will re-order, but for now it is a sipdown. I’m sending the last 5 G to a friend, along with the last of the Jinggu Golden Strand from YS, another tea worthy of re-ordering.
