From Yunnan Sourcing

First flush of pure bud “Dian Hong” Feng Qing area tea was used to compose this special process tea!

The freshly picked tea is wilted and then briefly fried in tropcal Yunnan muscovado style (un-processed) red sugar. The sugar is mixed with water, and used sparily in the frying process of the leaves. The brewed tea has a noticeably sweet taste and a nice malty full mouth-feel. The sweetness imparted by processing is subtle, and not overpowering at all! The unprocessed sugar (from cane stalks) imparts a special aroma and taste which commingles with the tea making it a lovely experience.

A unique tea never offered before!

I don’t remember drinking so much of this tea, but I’m well on my way to running out. This is another one of Yunnan Sourcing’s solid, interesting Chinese blacks. If you’ve only had Assam and Ceylons, go to Yunnan Sourcing, randomly pick a few black teas, and sit back and enjoy the ride. You can’t go very very wrong with their black tea selection, and the prices are more than decent – allowing for quite a bit of experimentation, without having your bank manager pick up the phone.
This tea seems very delicate and innocuous when dry, but through the magic power of hot water turns into quite a beasty. On the more powerful scale of Chinese teas (weaker than Assam, so don’t run away if you’re scared of strong teas), it is malty, fruity, with spice and seduction in the recesses. A tea to sip before an adventurous evening in an exotic part of town, or to have with a new foreign delicacy. Just be very, very careful not to overgrew it. It does bite.

SIPDOWN! i feel like i get to celebrate when it’s not a sample sipdown because man i have soooo many of those lol. Last day to try and hit my goal, which i won’t but at least my fake cupboard will be pretty close :) I have stuck myself on buying hiatus after today until i get back on track from all our house puchases (paint, couch, chair) and until my cupboard goal is met. Soooo if i’m going to splurge, today is the day hahaha.

This was from Terri, and there’s not much else to say about it that hasn’t been said already. Really like this one – the honey, malty notes in it are neat and it’s a good cup of smooth tea. :)
