From Yunnan Sourcing

Last flush Autumn pure buds “Dian Hong” Feng Qing area tea was used to compose this special process tea!

The freshly picked tea is wilted and then briefly fried in tropcal Yunnan muscovado style (un-processed) red sugar. The sugar is mixed with water, and used sparily in the frying process of the leaves. The brewed tea has a noticeably sweet taste and a nice malty full mouth-feel. The sweetness imparted by processing is subtle, and not overpowering at all! The unprocessed sugar (from cane stalks) imparts a special aroma and taste which commingles with the tea making it a lovely experience.

A unique tea never offered before!

I’m back inside my comfort zone, but still having a great tea day – I seem to have randomly picked out great ones today. Thank you so much for sharing Sil

I LOVE this. Onto the wish list – I need to get more of this.
Mmmmm everything a Chinese black tea should be and then a little more. What makes this one interesting for me is the burned sugar/molasses notes that are mingled with the malty, cocoa, caramel. Not a yam in sight.
I’m just going to hug my mug with this one for a bit…..

In the brewed tea aroma: molasses, cocoa

Tea has a strong white tea swampy taste to it. Molasses-honey sweetness in the background with a slight bitter cocoa edge.

Second infusion at boiling for 4 minutes. The cocoa flavour really comes out!

Third infusion at boiling for ~6 minutes. Cocoa-y, slightly creamy and delicious.

Thanks to Sil for sharing with me!

delicious cup of tea this morning as I’m trying to work on samples AND get around to trying/re-trying some of my YS teas. This was a really nice cup of sweet, malty deliciousness! a really nice pick from YS.

Dry the little black needles smell almost like a green tea (They don’t look quite like the picture. They are very tiny and very black.). I’d say a Bi Luo Chun but with a hint of molasses scent to it. I brewed Gong Fu. 195F -15 sec and added 15 sec to the second. For the third I kept it at 30 sec because the 2nd cup seemed a bit strong to me.

This is a yummy malty tea. I’m picking up molasses sweet taste in it and also cocoa notes (which was more pronounced in the first two infusions). There’s something about this black tea that reminds me of a green- again I think of Bi Luo Chun. Perhaps it’s something in the aroma of it brewed. It works for me anyway since I love greens. This black tea is an excellent tea!
