I tried my sample this morning and confirmed my impression that the “way into” Yunnan for me is drinking it blended with other varieties (in this case, Assam). The peaty, fuel-source quality was subdued, and gave the blend a warming effect that I appreciated on this unseasonably cold, wet and windy morning … sort of like pouring a half-shot of Laphroaig into a pot of tea.:)

I am a nearly lifelong tea drinker, a habit to which I ascribe much of my good health and good humor. I enjoy all types of tea but find special comfort in strong black teas lightened with a splash of unsweetened almond milk.
