Yunnan Soft Bone | Black Tea
Suave and unsparing. Strong spicy aroma, but a leisurely satin body. Sweet milk chocolate and flowers proposed. A real smooth talker.
Produced on April 1, 2022 by Ms. Zhao Yu Jie in Feng Qing county, the home base of Yunnan black tea. It’s a 1 bud 2 leaf pick from the Ruan Zhi Wulong cultivar growing at 6,200. The Ruan Zhi Wulong cultivar is originally from Anxi county in Fujian province (home of Tieguanyin) and shares its ancestry with Taiwan’s Qing Xin cultivar.
