From Yunnan Sourcing

This is one of those rare black teas where tea leaves and expert processing come together to create something unique and enjoyable. High altitude mao feng varietal grown in the Wu Liang mountains of Simao is briefly fermented by special technique and then finally processed into black tea. The taste and aroma is distinctly floral and fruit throughout!

Holy. Freakin’. Shanghai.
I love this tea.
This is the second time I’m having it since Terri sent me such a generous sample!
The first time I could taste bread, honey, sweet potatoes, and malt. Today I taste mostly malt with lot of honey and a touch of sweet potatoes in the background.
It is seriously just soo good! Oh goodness, I really should order more of this one!
Thank you sooo much for the sample, Terri!!!

A package arrived from china today! Yunnan sourcing order has arrived and with it some new and old yunnan blacks!

This one is new, the aroma when i opened the bag was malty and sweet! The tea itself is not really sweet but very malty without astringancy, perhaps a tiny bit fruity?

I found this info about the mao feng varietal.

Keemun Mao Feng (祁門毛峰) – A variety, where Mao Feng means Fur Peak, which is made of only slightly twisted leaf buds and is sometimes noted for a smoother and different flavor. Many people prefer to brew a smaller quantity of this tea for a much longer time than usual, up to 7 minutes, to bring out more interesting tones in the tea.

I will try half the leaf for 7 min, kinda like i brew Indian assam teas.

I really enjoy this one. The taste is rounder and fuller than the golden buds dian hong, yet not as sharp and smoky as the purplevarietals. It is something of its own i guess, havn´t tried that many keemuns.

Anyways its time to get some shut eye!
