Year of the Tiger 2022 Yiwu Black Tea

$6.50$24.00

Description

Made using the same left-to-grow (fangyang) material as our Year of the Tiger Yiwu raw puer, this budget friendly black tea offers a savoury and floral experience, punctuated by a sugary sweetness and slightly fruity aftertaste.

While shaihong/sun baking has become more common for Yunnan black teas, this tea is machine roasted according to our preference for black teas, as it offers more consistency and control over the results. We also recommend brewing this tea with ~90c degree water in order to achieve the best results.

For a more in-depth description of the environment where this tea comes from, you can read more here, as well as pick up both the raw puer and white tea versions of this tea in order to compare the same material with different processing.

This year’s wrapper features artwork by Toronto based artist 1%Talent. Be sure to check him out on Instagram, TikTok and pick something out for yourself from his shop here.

    Extremely soft and smooth. Usually black teas that pack this much flavor at this price point carry at least a little harsh finish. Not this one, it’s like drinking hot chocolate.

    Has a fruity (probably plum), chocolatey aroma. The liquor is chocolatey, malty, slightly floral and with a certain fruity twist. Very smooth tea as well. Delicious.

    Very enjoyable and decent tea for the price. Especially if clean tea is important to you. Pretty straight forward session. Wet leaves smell exactly like oven-baked raisins! This note translates into the liquor which is smooth and lacking in any unpleasant elements apart from a slight rubbery note.

    Savory sweetness with a bit of a tang in the aroma, like fresh bread, plum sauce, or oddly enough, paneer. There are some florals on the breath out, along with a smooth, slightly sticky viscosity. I found no bitterness or astringency- this is a very gentle, high note black tea, which reflects the character of the Yiwu material to me.
