This tea comes from southern Yunnan and is picked once a year in the early spring. The harvest utilizes fresh buds to create a flavorful and very sweet tea. The dry leaf aroma is malt, milk chocolate, wildflowers, and apricot, and the wet leaf hints at a deeper cocoa as well as oak and maple wood. The mouthfeel is silky smooth and clean, opening with dark oak honeydew and milk chocolate. The middle is full of cream and malt and the finish brings forth notes of wildflowers and apricot. Later infusions hint at stronger stonefruit and a mouth-coating nectar-like quality is always present. Currently my favorite Yunnan black tea!
