-New, commissioned microlot carrying floral redolence and rejuvenating flavor of fresh peaches-

Delighted with the success of Rare Orchid Black, we commissioned a new, experimental lot from our friends, the Zhou Family: Winter Daphne Black. This varietal microlot is most famously known as an oolong with aromatic semblance to its namesake: the evergreen shrub with heady, fruity blooms, native to Japan and China. As a black tea process, the erstwhile charcoal-roasted yancha yields unmistakable peach taste, with sumptuous mouthfeel. Yan yun, the vaunted “rock beauty” and haunting, vaporous, mouthwatering quality of yancha, transfigures into something rich and new. Notes of fresh peach, marigold, and aloe vera.
