“The quality is unspeakably gorgeous” – Caffeined Magazine
Have you tried black tea from China? Less well-known than its Indian and Sri Lankan counterparts, this excellent black (red) tea originates from the birthplace of tea – Yunnan province, China.
This fine example is grown in Mengku, at a height of 1950m in the Da Xue Shan Tea Garden.
Within the garden are some old tea trees aged around 80-100 years. Using natural farming methods, the Big Leaf trees are picked in April.
For a black tea, this Old Tree Yunnan has thick wiry leaves and an astonishing prevalence of golden tips (a sure sign of quality)
Yunnan is rich and malty with notes of caramel and chocolate. The age of these special trees creates a layer of refreshing honey. The lingering aftertaste is pure and mellow.
