2020 Spring Harvest - Yunnan Province, China
A rich mouthful of chocolate biscuits, Spiralling Dragon is a cup of full-bodied maltiness without the astringency of most common black teas. Enjoy this as a Luxurious Breakfast Tea (No milk or sugar is needed due to its natural sweetness), or enjoy in the afternoon with cake. Comforting, soothing and heartwarming. A really treasured Yunnan Treat.
Shaped into small snail shapes, Spiralling Dragons are entirely hand-processed from one leaf and one bud from the Yunnan Tea Bushes that are also used to make numerous Pu-Erh Teas in the region.
When brewed, these snail-shaped leaves will unfurl, revealing the one bud and one leaf structure. The amber coloured liquor produces a medium strength liquor with a savoury light scent reminiscent of rye bread and spices characteristic to Yunnan Tea. The flavour of this Dian Hong Tea (Yunnan Red Tea) is a sweet and malty flavour combination, very much like freshly baked sweet bread, with notes of cocoa and Medjool dates.
