From Yunnan Sourcing

After a hot and humid monsoon summer, the tea leaves from summer grow and mature, but are un-picked until the beginning of Spring when leaf and bud shoots grow and are plucked in a 3 day window of time. The tea is expertly processed in small batches to ensure a nutty thick fresh green tea taste!

Another result of sharing a subscription box with Ubacat.

The leaves of this tea are dark green-brown curled nuggets with a thick, vegetal scent that, in addition to the smoke/rubber note I mentioned above, smells somewhat roasted. In fact, it reminds me rather of an oolong than a green tea. Interesting.

I steeped 1.5 tsp of dry leaf in a 12oz mug with 85°C water for 2 minutes. The resulting brew was a pale orange-yellow and smelled similarly to the dry leaf — roasty, somewhat vegetal, but still smoky.

The taste was similar. However, I think this tea is better if you don’t think of it as a really green tea, but as a sort of lightly roasted oolong. Full review at http://booksandtea.ca/2015/08/tea-reviews-yunnan-sourcing-july-2015-jade-tea-box/

I had never associated Yunnan green teas with rubber. I enjoy most of them but do agree about the smoke. It’s one of the things I like about them.

Whoa! Sooo buttery! This is very good Bi Luo Chun, though it’s not the delicate stuff you’d get from more the Eastern provinces. The leaves are huge, the soup is thick and sweet. Notes of fresh bread, grass and orchids.

I’ll keep a look out for that one this spring! Have you tried Scott’s 2015 Teng Chong Hui Long Zhai green tea? It has that enjoyable pu’er bitterness. Fun reviews, by the way!
