Yunnan Black Needle Imperial

This medium-bodied selection boasts elegantly long, thin leaves that yield a dark, rich copper liquor with a toasty aroma. A creamy smooth mouth feel sets the stage for notes of honey and a subtle cocoa hint. A whisper of spice lingers in the finish.

Very worthy of trying and evaluating for yourself
Steve – NM – July 21, 2018

Mellow, rich, full-bodied and complex, with none of its flavors predominating over the others, and none of the hint of Lapsang-Souchong-like smokiness present in some other Yunnans but which some people including myself don’t prefer. My favorite so far of the 7 or 8 Yunnan teas I’ve tried from Upton Tea.

Wow! This is impressive
Martin – CO – January 05, 2018

This produces a dark, rich, full bodied cup of tea. It is amazingly toasty and very sweet, needing much less sugar than you’d expect from a tea this big and rich. The Upton review got my hopes up and they were fulfilled!
