Yunnan Black Rose Dragon Ball
These handcrafted dragon balls combine two of our favourite teas - Yunnan Black (Dian Hong) and Wild Rose Buds from Wenshan prefecture.
The tea originates from the Big Snow Mountain area of Mengku in Lincang prefecture; a high alttude area that's home to many tea gardens. The Assamica leaves are carefully plucked from 30- to 40-year old bushes growing naturally at an altitude of 1800-metres.
The tea brews up a deep red, with an intoxicating floral front-end, and smooth thick sweet after-taste. Thick and viscous, complex and interesting, the teas lasts many infusions.
Floral attack with malty sweet note and lingering after-taste.
Sample: 8g (1 x dragon ball)
