From White2Tea

The 2019 WTCCCTV is made from old arbor large leaf varietal tea that is usually destined to be made in raw Puer, picked and processed in shaihong [sun dried black tea] style tea with no machine processing.
WTCCCTV is a heavily sweet and full bodied black tea with a range of honey and fruit flavors that fluctuate between sweet grass and unripe pear. The natural style of sun dried processing means that leaves range in oxidation level, allowing for a complex experience with a bit of variation from session to session. This is an enduring and heavy black tea best suited for a longer, gongfu style tea session.

Gongfu!

Just gonna pull my write up directly from instagram because I think I did a hell of a job summarizing over there…

Very interesting first impression: starts off mild with honey and stonefruit jam notes, and a weird lingering sweetness on the tongue. Infused leaves smell deeply of dark chocolate covered nectarines and gunpowder. It took a few steeps, but eventually the tea caught up with the leaf aroma. Primarily still a fruity tea; nectarine/peach with a hint of orchard fruit taste in the finish. Whisps of soft smoke, delicate malt and honey notes, and a taste of semi dark cocoa compliment the jammy fruity dominating flavours. Midsession had a touch of sharp sourness, but this mellowed out fast. Still retains the lingering sweetness, which is a touch off & different from the main sip flavours…

I also paired this with a peach – but I didn’t actually start eating my peach until the last two infusions; I wanted to taste the bulk of the tea untainted by the flavour of the fruit – but clearly the peach was a natural compliment to the flavour of the tea. Thanks shredsofmetal for the gentle nudge into trying this one sooner rather than later; I still prefer Arbor Red but this session was delightful!!
