72 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 23rd, 2020

This was the first tea I've tried from Yunnan Sourcing to (relatively) disappoint. Perhaps it's just not suited to my tastes, and it's not bad, but I thought it failed to live up to the high expectations I have come to develop for this company.

This tea had both a different appearance and aroma from what I am used t...

Aroma: Really getting the black tea malty notes but not a ton of anything else. 6/10

Aroma: Smelling the dry tea, there is a fairly substantial coconut flesh aroma that thankfully stays away from the artificial sun tan lotion notes that can often plague many coconut products. In the mug, the rich malty notes from the black tea are dominant with a mild creamy coconut not...

92 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 22nd, 2020

I continue to branch out into black teas from provinces other than Yunnan, sold by Yunnan Sourcing. This was a pleasant surprise: an exceptionally smooth tea, easy to brew and easy to drink, among the sweetest Keemuns I've tried.

The dry leaf is very fine and curly, so much it is shaped more like Bi Luo Chun than li...

Dec. 22nd, 2020

Prep: 212F, 5min, 2 heaping tsp for 16oz.

Aroma: I often am critical of chai teas because they are too balanced. Typically, I want the spice when I go for chai. This blend delivers. Quite spicy, plenty of chocolate in the nose. 9/10

Flavor: There is not a disparity between the aroma and flavor which is nice. Ve...

Dec. 21st, 2020

Prep: 2 tsp, 16oz, 212F, 5min

The aroma of this dry tea is mind blowing. I honestly believe this could be a dehydrated banana nut muffin in a bag.

Aroma:after brewing, this still very much smells like a banana nut muffin. It’s crazy how well it hits all those notes. 10/10

Taste: There is a bit of a honey...

Dec. 21st, 2020

Prep: 212F, 3 min, 16oz, 2tsp

Appearance: deep red with some oil residue on top of the tea (from the candy cane, I’d guess)

Aroma: This smells incredible. So much peppermint. Of even go as far as to say that it’s the specific peppermint that I’d associate with a candy cane. Incredibly well done.

Style: Black Tea – Region: Wuyi, Fujian, China

86 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 19th, 2020

This was a pleasant, if somewhat disappointing tea that I found tasted better as it cooled.

The dry leaf is long, wiry, and grayish black, and has a mild aroma that initially is a sort of sweet chocolatey quality, underlain by a deep maltiness. It reminds me of a chocolate shortbread cookie. Overall, the dry leaf do...
