Tea Specifications

Brand: Yunnan Sourcing
Tea: Yi Mei Ren Wu Liang Mountain Yunnan Black Tea
Vintage: March, 2022
Origin: Wu Liang Mountain area of Jingdong, China

The tea is made from Yunnan large-leaf varietals, and is processed like a black tea.


Has a good flavor, but the bottom notes are somewhat flat. It’s not exactly what I consider to be full-bodied, as it has a bit of a ‘watery’ component to it, even when it’s brewed strong. It’s fairly gentle, but with quite noticeable aromatics. In a way, it almost reminds me of an oolong tea.

Flavor notes: Toasted malt, almond, sweet potato, wood, currant, honey and cocoa powder.
