Cultivar: Jin Xuan "Golden Lily"
Elevation: 1,850m
Harvest Date: April-May 2016

Yunnan Lily Black highlights the unforgettable aromas of the Jin Xuan ("Golden Lily") tea tree cultivar. When processed into black tea, the aromas of East Asian wild rose and lychee develop. This tea is made using a slightly higher drying temperature to draw out those aromas to their fullest potential. Yunnan Lily Black is an excellent tea for brewing in the Gongfu Cha style, using a Gaiwan or Yixing teapot to capture and savor the persistent, lingering rosy aroma that this tea has to offer.



Tasting Notes: Exotic black tea with a lush aromatic bouquet of wild rose and lychee.

Ingredients: organic black tea

Yunnan, China

This tea was a delightful surprise! I didn't have any expectations from the sample I ordered, but now I'm back to get a large bag and hoping it shows up soon, as I only have one more serving to go!

I can't describe the flavor or scent well, but there is something flowery in it. It's light for a black tea, I think.

The other reviewers described it interestingly, but they didn't love it like I do, which puzzles me.

I was really excited to get the Earl Grey, as I love Earl Grey, but this is the one I'm the most obsessed with. (Rishi Earl Grey is the best I've had of that type though.)
Owner Response: Thanks Karisha! We love Lily Black too. It is made from a tea bush cultivar that is typically grown to produce oolong tea (Jin Xuan), so that is why it is so aromatic. Enjoy!

The competing notes of blossoming flowers and summer hay will suit the most discriminating curmudgeon at the morning breakfast table.

A solid, flavorful tea with an every day drinkability. The nose is lychee, rose, and pineapple. On the palate there are very distinctive rose and lychee notes and a bit of pleasant astringency. An elegant tea for early evening.
