A Yunnan black tea from the Simao region, grown in this area by several families for a few decades, although the varietal is much older and is likely close to pure assamica. This tea brews a rich, smooth, and potent black tea with aroma and aftertaste of sweet aged honey or wood syrup that balances well with the natural bitterness of the leaf. It's a wonderful tea that can be drank pure or with a bit of cream for an elevated black tea experience.
