This came to me from Terri Harplady.
Well ain’t that a beauty. Long downy bright golden strands. Pure buds indeed.
The taste did surprise me a little. I was expecting a candy sweet cup, but it’s got a little more character than that.
First, it’s provides a very interesting texture. It feels thick and powdery in the mouth.
I’m a little perplexed by it. It’s brisk and bright, the way fresh green bell peppers are. It’s also a bit earthy and woodsy. I also get plums and flowers. It’s not overly malty and I get no cocoa in this at all.
I can’t say this is my favourite type of black, but I like that it surprised me and gave me a good morning cup.
Thank you Terri for helping me narrowing down my favourite Yunnan Sourcing teas. I don’t think I would order this one, but I’m so happy I got try it but also see it cause it’s so beautiful.
