Wild Dianhong Menghai

Wet Leaves Aroma: roasted vegetables, cocoa and honey
Taste: Sweetness of light honey and sweet potato, a little minty and woody
body and mouthfeel of the tea: medium thick like a rising milk, surprisingly silky and soft
A wild black tea with an amazingly silky texture. The taste of this black tea is not its highlight, but its texture. The tea feels really velvety in the mouth and glides down the throat with a flattering silkiness.
The leaves look rough as the tea is harvested from abandoned trees in the forests of Menghai County, Yunnan Province, but its tea liquor is a great contrast, being amazingly fine and silky. It is a pleasant tea for a cold and wet winter.
