From Yunnan Sourcing

An incredible premium pure bud black tea. Made from the highest quality high altitude material from Ning’Er county of Simao. Only young bud sprouts are picked and then expertly processed into this delicate and textured Imperial grade black tea!

The tea’s aroma smells of fruit and sugarcane. Sweet in the mouth, with plenty of texture that fills the mouth with a comfortable feeling. 

An exquisite artisan tea!

A tea for those who have forgotten the wonder of black tea. This bud-heavy pick is often seen in white and green styles, but surprises and delights in its fully oxidized state with intense expressions of malt and molasses. Care must be taken, as oversteeping blunts the sweet nuance. If you’re a jaded tea head who thinks black tea isn’t as interesting as other styles, this is one for your cupboard to change your mind.

If your tea ceremony is important to you, a time to share space with friends or marinate in your own device-free thoughts, this offering stands up as more than a drink – it’s a place to be inside yourself. It may not be as multidimensional as oolong, but the few notes it emits are played virtuosically. A simple but deep cup that radiates carmelized yam and unfermented rum.

There is some warranted smack talk about uninteresting black teas from Yunnan Sourcing, which is generally only recommended for puerh. Indeed, a lot of the smack talk is true. This particular black is just an exception.
