$8.00 USD

Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Tea Shop

In recent years using high quality wild arbor and old arbor tea leaves from tea trees that have historically been used for pu-erh production has become more popular.  The taste of black tea produced from pure assamica trees growing naturally is something unique and delightful!

This tea was picked and processed in Mid-April from Xiao Hu Sai area tea trees, and the expertly processed by our friend Mr. Duan.  The taste is so thick and sweet.  There is honey, malt and milk chocolate here, but there is a unique green-ness to it that adds character without any bitterness or astringency.  The leaves are generous and give many satisfying full-bodied steeps.

A good candidate for aging, this tea will give you much pleasure!
