Description

Cultivar: Jin Xuan "Golden Lily"
Elevation: 1,850m
Harvest Date: April 2017

Yunnan Lily Black highlights the unforgettable aromas of the Jin Xuan ("Golden Lily") tea plant cultivar. Also used for our Yunnan Orchid Green, Jin Xuan gives off aromas of East Asian wild rose and lychee fruit when processed into black tea. Our Yunnan Lily Black is grown in a biodiverse and exceptionally well-managed organic tea garden on Wa Shan Mountain, which is named after the Wa ethnic minority group who calls it home. The Wa Shan Tea Garden can be found on southwest border with Myanmar, in a region with a rarely lush microclimate in an otherwise drought-prone province. 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.

A very special black for me. Not my every day black but a very special tea, very fragrant when brewed.

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!
