From PuerhShop.com

Yunnan is a region in China known for growing large-leaf tea of producing top quality black tea. High mountains covered by mist, with clean water supply from nearby rivulets, rich humus soil …these ideal conditions contribute a lot to the unique flavor of Yunnan black tea, earning it a worldwide reputation.

If you like traditional black teas, you will love this. Much more sophiticated than the mass marketed black teas and less bitter. Our large-leaf Yunnan premium black tea has perfect leaf appearance and a great taste. You won’t be disappointed!

Yunnan premium black tea is made by famous Fengqing Tea Factory according to its Classics 58 recipe, it is a very pure and tasty tea that is full-bodied and rich with a hint of natural sweet malty flavor, a brew that no other black teas come close.

Perfectly wonderful daily drinker, and just what I needed on a chilly morning. There’s a lot of malt, lending to that black tea flavor. There is also a bit of earthiness.

My favorite part is the complexity of this tea. It has a fruity floral kind of scent that’s carried into the flavor.

Really, this is just what I needed this morning.

I bought a few things from puerhshop.com, mainly to have a couple things I could definitely include in teaboxes (most of my teas are samples at this point with 1-2 teaspoons left). This one sounded good! The leaves are very long and wirey, half gold and half black. I used two teaspoons.

Steep #1 // 8 min after boiling // 3 min
Uh oh, the brew color is very light, but I figure it will just be like Verdant’s Golden Fleece. It does taste similar, but since the leaves are half black and not entirely gold, it does lack a bit of that honey flavor that Golden Fleece has but that tea is a high standard. This one isn’t terrible though! Still plenty of honey. I wonder where the black tea leaf flavor is though. If the leaves were all gold, there might have been more honey flavor. I should have tried using two teaspoons and a hotter temp though.. next time.

Steep #2 // just boiled // 4 min
Oh, this cup is really nice too. More honey and hints of that yunnan flavor… tiny bit of chocolate. I like this. No astringency or overbrewed leaf flavor at all. I just need to use more leaves next time. This would be lovely if you want a light tea. It will fill a niche for that honey tea in my collection.
