This is a rare infusing-durable organic black tea with charming fruity fragrance and sweet taste. The taste will turn mellower as time goes on.
This Organic Jinhao Black Tea is made of mostly tea buds and tender leaves from the baihao tea bush, so that the taste is mainly soft and sweet. You may be surprised to smell the complex fruity fragrances in the dry leaves when opening the bag. This is the distinct feature of teas made from baihao tea bush. The new harvest tea is of soft and delicate sweet taste, however, the taste will convert to be mellower a few months later.
Located in mountainous area with elevations ranging from 500 - 1,200 m, Yaming Bai Hao tea garden covers a total area of 1,000 mu. Yaming tea garden is surrounded by woods and often shrouded in clouds and mist in the morning and at night. These advantageous natural conditions can help prevent the majority of harmful effects of UV rays to the growth of tea plants and obviously increase the contents of amino acid and chlorophyll accumulated in tea buds and leaves. To ensure tea quality, chemical fertilizers and pesticides are strictly forbidden to use in this garden. Based on this theory, Yaming tea garden was authorized to label its products as Organic in 2015.

* Required Fields
Thank you for the samples, Teavivre! Another solid black tea from Teavivre. The dry leaves are very unique -- they look like wild tea with HUGE, wiry leaves, tangled together in shades of black and gold. The scent of the dry leaves have a hay-in-the-field quality. The flavor is a little like that as well, with a medium flavor strength and starchiness (like sweet potatoes!) I've been really enjoying the sweet starchy aftertaste of black teas lately! The first time I had this tea, I didn't think I used enough leaves. But I think because the leaves are so huge (the biggest leaves I've ever seen in a tea) the tea has a lighter flavor from the big leaves, just like a CTC tea has a stronger flavor because of the tiny leaves. But stronger does not mean better. Since I probably used a teaspoon more on the second steep session, the steeps were richer in flavor, though still tough to pick out individual flavor notes each time. Simply a satisfying black tea. I think I used close to Teavivre's parameters minus a teaspoon. I wouldn't say this is the best black tea from Teavivre, but it is VERY hard to decide which is the worst. Steep #1 // half of a sample for a full mug// 12 minutes after boiling // 3 minute steep Steep #2 // just boiled // 4 minute steep
This tea has a fruity note. I like the second steep better and I find that 3 infusion is the most you can get out of this tea. I personally won't go beyond the third infusion.
This tea lingers on for many steeps, being similar to the second steep where the richness dominates over the sweetness for four more steeps, and then for the last three fruity sweetness returns. I really enjoyed this tea, and not just because I am obsessed with Hongcha or because it is from a region I don't explore very often! I enjoyed it because it has flavor notes I greatly enjoy and found its long lingering aftertaste to be delicious. Also, it behaves very well bowl steeping style, which is always a plus, brewing versatility is a wonderful thing. I seem to be saying it a lot lately, but this tea is a favorite and I want more!
These leaves are huge, a size I'm more accustomed to seeing in twisted oolongs. The flavour is fruity, fruity, fruity! I'm not familiar with longan fruit, but it tasted rather like a good lapsang with the smoke stripped away to me. There's just a note of dark cocoa and roastiness on the swallow. Good tea.
Beautiful extremely long curly leaves. Taste is of moderate strength, so use longer steep times and higher temperature.
