From Yunnan Sourcing

This lovely black tea was grown in an untended plantation in the Wu Yi area of Fujian. First flush of spring tea was plucked from Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong varietal tea bushes正山小种 and then processed in a unique style to produce this unique style of black tea. The taste is sweet, fruity, floral and vegetal from this greener style (less oxidation) of black tea. The tea soup is a golden color, but as this tea ages a few months or years the tea soup will get more orange when brewed and the honey/fruit character will be more pronounced as well!

This is a lovely Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong. It is good both Western style (where it comes out honey-sweet with a backbone of malt and grass) and gong fu (where it gives you at least 4-5 distinctly tasting steeps). Prepared gong fu it evolves through honey/caramel/flowers to herbs/spices/vegetal and then to vegetal/malty.

Overall, it is way less malty and baked potato-y then a typical unsmoked lapsang. The aroma is decent and the flavors are pure and well-defined.
