Commercial Description

(RateTea Translation) This famous tea is mild and floral. Does not get bitter easily. This tea originates in Yunnan province in southwest China. For centuries, only green tea was produced here. The black tea there is currently one of the best in the world, even though it has only been produced for a few decades.

This tea smells similar to Simon Lévelt's Ruhuna Orange Pekoe. The leaves are more colourful, with many golden tones, but the aroma has a similar strong dried fruit quality. However, I don't think I'd describe it as plums, exactly. Raisins come to mind, or rather, a kind of spicy raisin cake.

The liqueur tastes very sweet and fruity, but I think I definitely understand that this tea is supposed to taste peppery. It's far, far better than I remember it! I recall that at first I thought it smelled and tasted exactly the same as Ruhuna Orange Pekoe, but now I can perceive the difference. Maybe my taste has matured since almost a year ago.

I'm currently trying to clear out some of the black teas in my collection, since I have way too many of them, but it's not going so well given that I drink almost exclusively green tea these days. This one might have a chance of being finished, however. I don't think I'll buy more of it, at least not right away, but I'll certainly remember this tea after I run out. And until then, I'll enjoy!
