BIG BLESSING Yunnan Black Tea - 2 oz
I have always thought Yunnan Hong (Black) Cha should be its own food group - somewhere between the fruit and dessert course of a meal, or in lieu of dessert, because of it's rich, syrupy character. This special blend is to be savored. The tea is composed of a blend of fine tips and buds which is the first indicator of its refined quality. Dry leaf presents with a intoxicating trifecta of floral, fruity and chocolate aromas. The dark amber tea soup is full bodied and very smooth with a delicious bouqet of floral, fruity, malt, chocolate and caramel notes punctuated with a dash of pepper spice. It has just the right structure to enjoy it on it's own, or if you prefer, with milk and sweetener. The generosity of flavor and aroma reminded me of what a big blessing it is to experience Camellia sinensis in so many beautiful ways, such as this. Spring harvest.
