This tasty black tea is composed of Spring 2018 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!
This year’s pick is a 2 leaf to 1 bud ratio, whereas the Spring 2017 pick was 1 leaf to 1 bud. They are going to look and taste a bit different, but they are from the same garden and processed by the same person (Mr. Duan).
Area: Da Hu Sai Village of Lincang (Yunnan Province)
