From Whispering Pines Tea Company

Quick Sips: Super rich and vibrant black tea with base notes of fruit and malt. Florals dance through a creamy mouthfeel thanks to this tea being made with an oolong varietal. One of my favorites from this year!

I am a fan of Jin Guan Yin. I have never tried Jin Guan Yin Black. Rich, complex tea with many different dried fruit notes. Fruity. Maybe some grape, melon notes. Throughout the infusions, I got some passionfruit, baked peach, stonefruits, fig. In the earlier infusions, some sweet notes, of caramel, sugarcane, honey with maltiness. Certainly, not your average “black” tea. It has a nice creamy textured mouthfeel and a lingering fruity, malty taste.
