Jinggu "Assamica Big Tree" Black Tea * Spring 2018
Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Tea Shop
Nice Yunnan Assamica Black Tea from naturally growing tea trees aged 30 to 70 years of age growing naturally near Bai Ni Shui Village in Jinggu county of Simao province. These tea trees have been used for Pu-erh production in the past, but this year the owner (tea grower) decided to enlist help from a neighbor to produce some black tea. The result is a lovely robust black tea.
The taste is a pungent dried fruit sweetness, with some bitterness and some dark chocolate notes. The tea soup is deep dark red and the scale of the stems, leaves and buds are a testament to it's Assamica origins.
