This distinctive superior black tea comes from the Yunnan province. Yunnan Black was first produced over 1500 years ago, making it one of the oldest teas. This strong tea has a spicy aroma and yields an orange-reddish cup. Yunnan is good after dinner and can also be enjoyed with milk.

Another great morning tea! Malty and even with a tad of sweetness! Smooth!

Not as chewy as some Yunnan’s but still a winner!

A delicious Yunnan tea. The leaf is beautiful with golden tips, and it smells of wood and spice.

I really like this. It has a hint of pepper, and a roasted wood quality to it… the peppery note seems to be slightly more mellow than some of the Yunnan teas I’ve tasted.

Solid black tea. Smells like amber, tastes a bit fruity with just enough astringency to bring it all back home. I would classify this as a “session tea” much like a pilsner or brown ale if you want a beer analogy. It’s not going to blow you away necessarily but it is a reliable choice.

Dry leaf scent: It reminds me of sweet earth and fruits in scent. Actually it reminds me of a keemun!

Wet Leaf scent: Very strongly sweet-earthy. The greatest thing I could attribute to this would be wet leaf litter but it’s not nearly off-putting as that.

The tea: Smells like a yunnan. Dark chocolate with a bit of pepper. The earthiness is less pronounced than in the leaves. The color is a dark, slightly opaque amber after a 3 minute steep. In fact I worry I oversteeped it a bit. It tastes strong as I like them without any bitterness or astringency. There’s a malty-sweet to this, with a lingering almost fruity aftertaste. This is a very mellow tea and it’s not particularly tippy, although there is a noticeable amount of tip.

I was originally pretty skeptical- I figured with its price it would be pretty bad, maybe barely scraping mediocre. I suppose I can say I’m pleasantly surprised.
