From T2

Originally black teas in China were grown near the coast because they were cultivated for export. In 1938 with the Japanese invasion and occupation of the East Coast the cultivation of tea moved to Western China because of ease of trade through India and so began the history of Yunnan black tea.

Brew:1 tsp per 250ml, 2-3 mins at 100 °C (212°F) Good for 2 infusions


Flavour:Sweet, smooth, woody, honey, molasses notes. A hint of fennel on the returning flavour. The sensation of this tea runs around your mouth.

A ‘premium’ tea from T2 that I took home as a sample and then seemed to disappear from the website before I had time to purchase some! And what a shame – because this tea is a winner! Its appearance is similar to Grand Yunnan but its flavour is far more complex and floral. On the lighter side of Chinese black teas (which is the side I like to be on) this tea is delicate, complex and well balanced.

Aroma: Delicate and enticing. Subtle dried orange peel and rose petal, with a slight woody undertone.

Palate: Delicious. Delicately sweet and complex. More ‘floral and fruity’ than ‘dark and woody’ but very well balanced. Beautiful rose petal notes and subtle marmalade. Good length.

Overall: This tea really impressed me. I feel like the flavour profile of this tea would be great cold-steeped but I finished mine before I got a chance to try it!

Flavors: Floral, Wood
