Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Tea Shop

This is a tippy picked lightly roasted Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong that was picked during the first flush of spring.  After several months of roasting and resting this lovely tea has developed a thick sweet taste with a noticeable orchid aroma.  It's delightful to experience this complex and delicious black tea.

Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong is a long time favorite varietal from Fujian province that's grown in and around the Wu Yi Mountain area.  Wu Yi Mountain area is the home to Rock Oolongs like Da Hong Pao and Shui Xian and provides the perfect conditions for black tea production as well.
