From Yunnan Sourcing

This tasty black tea is composed of Spring 2017 wild arbor assamica tea from the same plants as we used for our Spring 2014/15 Da Hu Sai village raw pu-erh cake!

Tea is picked, fried, rolled, wilted for about 24 hours in warm shaded area and then finally dried to produce this lovely pure assamica black tea.

The feeling of the tea is thick in the mouth, the taste peppery, floral and sweet all at once. This traditional process for Yunnan black tea dates back more than 100 years!

Area: Da Hu Sai Village of Lincang (Yunnan Province)

This is a nice, albeit somewhat unremarkable hong cha. In the smell I get notes of malt, brown sugar, chocolate, nuts, blackberries and sweet pepper. The taste is balanced and can sometimes appear a little flat. I noticed notes of malt, cherry wood, orange zest and bread crust. Aftertaste is not very long and displays even more of the citrusy qualities.

The tea has a medium body with a liquor that’s not very coating, although it has decent thickness. The mouthfeel is a bit powdery, but it becomes smoother when cooled down.
