Mingzhu Tea Gardens, Wuyishan, Fujian, China      

This is the Chinese domestic grade of “Lapsang Souchong” - none of that smoky rubbish made for the export market. Instead, a proper zhengshan xiaozhong offers inviting notes of vanilla, malt and butterscotch. Additionally, this is a limited edition late crop, when supply depletes, only the heavens can tell whether similar conditions will be replicated to create the same offering again. It has been a highly regarded season, the tea has a notably sweeter and more refined finish than many of its predecessors.

Dry leaves: dark, medium length, wirey
Taste: notes of vanilla, butterscotch and malt
