Description

The tea was picked in 2017. They used traditional Dian Hong (Yunnan Black) technique to make it, with some sun drying involved.
In final taste and character this black ( or red tea in Chinese ) is between the sun dried Shai Hong ( 曬太陽 / 晒太阳 )and Dian Hong ( 滇红 ).

Due to it’s aging ( it was aged in Kunming ), the tea has nice hints of cocoa powder, cigar and some earthy taste.
It takes a while for the tea to smoothly spread in the whole body and calm body and mind, but one definitely arrives to a nicely chilled state.
