Another blind tasting. This one is a “wild” Yunnan Black provided by Vicky of Tan Long Tea.

Nice show! I drink a lot of black tea myself. The Yunnan blacks, apart from purple Dehong, seem very light and subtle to me overall, I don’t think I would drink a more tannic black first or it would kill my palate for anything more subtle. Having said that, I prefer the palate killers!
Search it on duckduckgo!
Oak galls? 😀
Been enjoying this tea recently. I think your tasting notes are spot on. I get more roast, nut, cacao than I typically experience in a Yunnan black. Your comparison to a Wuyi Oolong kind of sweetness is apt. Overall I really enjoy this tea. I found it to have good longevity. It is a nice contrast to less roasted Yunnan blacks.
