Qing Pin black loose-leaf tea is grown in China’s Nanhu Mountain range, which has a track record of producing teas that rival the best offerings from the famed Wuyi Mountains. Yezi’s Qing Pin tea is locally sourced from farmer Huang Jian, whose family has been involved in growing tea at Nanhu, one of China’s most famed tea growing regions, for the last 250 years.
Qing Pin in Chinese means bold personality, which is apt for this famed Nanhu Mountain tea. Qing Pin tea leaves produce a bold, dark, burgundy-colored beverage. The flavor has pronounced notes of peach and pear with distinctive smoky notes that neatly balance the natural sweetness of the tea. Qing Pin is frequently snapped up by government officials, tea connoisseurs, and government officials who happen to be tea connoisseurs! Now, because of Yezi’s partnership with Huang Jian, Qing Pin is also available to the world at large.
Yum! A great roasty black tea. Dark chocolate and burnt toast notes. Didn't taste any smoke, which I was happy about. Thanks for the sample, I will definitely reorder!
This is a very tasty, light and nutty black tea. Smokiness complements the multitude of flavors found in each sip. Good value for the price. I brew it western style and it's good for a couple resteeps. Writing this review makes me want to make a cup right now!
I agree with the previous review; this has a great roasty chocolatey flavor. Especially on the first brew. The pear flavor comes through a little more in the next couple brews. It has some smokiness to it, but it's very well balanced. I really like this tea!
I find myself craving for this tea a fair bit. I bought this on a whim as one of the cheaper teas on the site when I was grabbing some samples because I had completely ignored the red tea category on here. I must say that I am not disappointed and I'm actually very happy that the description doesn't completely match the tea. Like other reviewers, I don't get a lot of smokiness out of it. Instead, when I sniff the leaves I get a beautiful toasty that, upon tasting, is accompanied by dark chocolate and pear flavor. Very delicious and holds up well to further infusions. This one is good to brew in a multitude of ways. This is one I would gladly purchase again.
