This highly aromatic black tea from Fujian is one of M. He’s recent experimentations. Skilfully transformed following the Chinese methods for black tea, the Jin Guan Yin (a cultivar from the Wuyi Mountains normally used for wulong production) reveals an exceptionally smooth and fruity profile.
This black tea from Fujian (Wuyi Mountains) has beautiful full leaves, slightly rolled into thin twists. The vegetal (roasted parsnip) aromas and malty, nutty and chocolatey notes are superimposed on the bittersweet character of the liquor. The presence of buds is also manifested by a floral and sweet finish.
