Ok, so I have no idea what I was gibbering about in my first tasting notes. This tea is great. I paid a little more attention to the amount of tea this time instead of eyeballing and used 7gm in 200ml pot as TerryHL. The soup is a nice rich red brick color and the flavors of malt and chocolate are insane. Steeped it 10 times till I could pee no more and the last one was still flavorful. Has a nice energy boost to it as well. As I have finished off all my green teas this will be my buddy for the rest of the winter.

That’s the great thing about giving tea several chances! I had the same thing happen to me with a Guizhou Black, it wasn’t happening for me. Then as I learned how it reacted to temperatures and times it came to crave it.

Yes, I so agree to giving tea a couple of trials before deciding if you truly dislike it…so many times I’ve changed my mind.

I’ll have to agree with you all! Sometimes if I drink a tea western style it will seem ‘ok’, but then if I go with gongfu steepings, it will be amazing! This is one of those teas.
