From Red Blossom Tea Company

Harvested late spring 2015 in Yunnan Province, our Yunnan Pearl uses the young buds along with two or three more mature leaves from the top of the plant. As the tea oxidizes, the youngest leaves become a bright golden color, while the mature leaves turn a deep black color. These tea leaves were carefully hand picked, sun withered, rolled to bruise the leaf, and then allowed to slowly oxidize before roasting.

The result is rich, deep, and smoky, with a lovely bittersweet finish akin to cacao nibs.

Awesome black tea. Silky, velvety smooth. Super complex, super deep. Slightly sweet, with overtones of smoky chocolate.

The 2nd steeping is just as good, just a bit blended and less deep. But still damn tasty.

i’m back from vacation. While it was a great vacation…i got to drink NO tea because a) the water had a dirt like quality that i wasn’t loving and b, the kettle at the place we were staying at was just…NO.

so i’m happy to be back drinking tea… sadly i got carried away with catching up at work while drinking this one so i don’t have a lot to say yet. the colder it gets, the more chocolate notes poke through, but i for sure need to have this one again. Glad dexter was able to send enough for me to have a couple cups :)

Welcome back, Sil! I am not going to ask where you were because I have been away from steepster and out of the loop. I will read up and maybe all the mysteries will reveal themselves. And if not, then I will ask.
