Classic Yunnan aroma, nice earthy/spice. Mild flavor, not acidic or sharp, slightly sweet after taste. Liquor (5 min steep) honey brown with a slight redness. For me, easy to sip. Overall, a good pick.

Good Yunnan aroma, nice earthiness/wood. The liquor (5min steep) is a wonderful honey. Taste is a solid Yunnan, with a slight sweetness (peach?) after taste. The leaves are black and tan. I would enjoy this tea anytime during the day.

The aroma is a mild earthiness with a hint of classic Yunnan. The liquor (5min steep) is a nice amber. Mild flavor with no out standing notes. Enjoyable, but it would not be my first choice from this company.

The aroma reminds my of wheat toast with a slight sweetness (grapes?) in the background. The liquor is a pleasant clear brown (5 min steep). The flavor is very enjoyable, with an almost dueling after taste, peppery with a hint of sweet. I am going to enjoy this tea.

Spring 2022. "Classic" Yunnan aroma. mild, nothing distinctive. Liquor (5 min steep, using the Breville tea machine) is a nice brown with a slight gold tinge. Tasty, great for sipping. PS: The leaves are long. I might have used less tea than actually needed for a full 6 cup pot. Next pot I will crush the leaves into sm...

Jan. 8th, 2023

I tried this tea right when I ordered it, but did not like it. It had few objectionable qualities, and was actually quite smooth, but simply seemed a little boring. However, I set it in my cupboard for quite some time and sure enough, it has started tasting more interesting after about a year and a half. Still, it is n...

Mild all around. Aroma is a weak Yunnan. Flavor is a mediocre Yunnan, with a slight burnt after taste. Liquor brews (5min) to a deep brown. Not impressed.

Here is a nice Yunnan. The aroma is fresh and woodsy, like taking an April walk in a park. The flavor is smooth and mild, with a little bit of astringency on the palate. It is well worth the modest price.

This tea is really good! It’s aromatic and bready smelling which I like. The taste is really smooth and it has a complex flavor with slight bitterness but in a good way! This is a really enjoyable tea!

Oct. 30th, 2021

This tea is pretty smooth and easy to drink, however it is a bit boring and doesn’t have a super strong aroma. I’m still giving it a highish score just because it is a comforting tea to drink and it doesn’t have any outwardly negative qualities like being too harsh or astringent.

This tea is really good! It has a bready and raisiny aroma it tastes very smooth and somewhat chocolaty. My one complaint is that it’s very slightly astringent in the aftertaste.

I found this a pleasant tea to drink but it was not among my favorites. It was surprisingly different from its organic counterpart. Of the two, I strongly preferred this one.

The leaf is tightly rolled and quite beautiful. Compared to the organic version of this tea, it looks a little paler in color and slightly loo...

Sep. 10th, 2021

This tea was quite singular, unlike most of the other teas from Yunnan Sourcing. I thought it was a good tea but it was a bit too much for me. It's strong, both by flavor and caffeine. I am reviewing the Spring Harvest from 2020.

This tea took up a lot less space than most all the other Yunnan Teas I've tried. The d...

Sep. 7th, 2021

This was a straightforward tea that I found easy to like; I became a fan from the first sip. It's robust, easy to brew, easy to drink, and pleasing in both flavor and aroma. Overall, it is more flavorful than aromatic though.

The dry leaf is beautiful, a very bright yellow color, not as orangeish as many of these ti...

This was a really enjoyable tea that also had a lot of depth and complexity.

The dry leaf is made exclusively of luscious, thick, fuzzy buds that are kinda rolled on themselves; the picture does not really do it justice. Although it seems to be pure buds, they look a bit more mature than on some tippy teas, and they...

This tea heavily underwhelmed me, and particularly, it was too weak. My favorite aspect of it was the fragrance of the dry leaf, but after that, it disappointed me.

The dry leaf has an unbelievably potent and incredily pleasing aroma. To me it seems more malty than anything else, strong smells of grain and baked goo...

A mellow and balanced, easy-to-brew tea that had a lot of aromatic complexity, and an overall character somewhat intermediate between large-leaf Assam and Yunnan teas.

The dry leaf, which looks a little darker than in the picture from Yunnan Sourcing's website, has a wiry and kinda dusty appearance, and consists of ...

I found this to be a subdued, but intriguing tea that seemed to have a lot of depth and complexity. Although it doesn't jump out at me, I found that it seemed a little different each time I drank it.

It's also another tea that in many respects resembles some of the large-leaf Assam teas (not just Assamica cultivar, ...

This is a wonderful thick bodied tea! It has sort of a milk cocoa smell and it tastes a bit chocolatey as well. It has a mild sweet taste and it’s just really amazing! It is so smooth and not astringent or bitter at all

I thought this was an exceptional tea, but one not particularly suited to my tastes. I still liked it a lot though. It tastes the most like a white tea of any black tea I've tried.

The dry leaf is explosively fragrant, suggesting malt, caraway, overripe fruit, and flowers. There is a lot going on in the aroma, it's ...
