This tea has a malty, earthy aroma. I get a flavor of honey wheat with a slight smokiness on the back end. This is a very good black tea that is not on the heavy chocolate/cocoa side.

Amber in color with a leathery aroma. This tea has a sweet and savory flavor with a bit of astringent taste in the background. The flavor I get is a mix of plum and wood with a little bit of vegetal notes. Overall quite a pleasant tea.

This tea has the aroma of wet wood and hay. It has an earthy rich flavor that is malty with a hint of fruitiness, peach maybe. I am not the biggest fan of fruitiness in black tea, but this one I liked.

Light amber in color with a a very inviting aroma. This tea is slightly sweet with a soft wood flavor and a hint of plum flavor. It is similar to Teavivre’s Fengqing Ancient Tree Spring Chun Jian Raw Pu-erh 2012, but I like the 2012 much more than this tea.

Flavors: Plums, Wood

I think I steeped this tea too long, it was bitter and astringent. Taking that into account, I did not get much character from this tea, not something I would drink again.
