Nice ceylon, but lacks the complex flavours of my other ceylon “New Vithanakande”. Added a dab of honey to round up the flavour. Nice!

This tea is magnificent, one of the absolute best yunnan blacks ivé tried.
first cup is full of honey, so sweet and slightly malty. this time i actually added 1tsp of highquality forest honey to the last two cups. They tasted just like the first…. haha no need to add anything sweet to this tea. Never want to run out of this!

Superb as always! Really do hope i get a chance to restock!
Today i recieved my order from yuuki-cha. I´m looking forward to trying escpeically the Koubi-Shiage oolong as it is supposed to be somewhat like a japanese Da Hong Pao. Unfortunatly they packed my order wrong so i got another bag of hime-fuki instead of Hime-hikari. oh well. will try that next time. :)

Smooth flowery with more than a hint of lemon. Just wonderful, still one of my favorite greens! Will be sure to restock with this years harvest but will wait for autumn flush :)
This tea makes me happy!
Ah, after finishing the black bi lou chun i turned to some higher quality tea. The leaf is ong needles, yellowish and black. The smell is very malty.

consequitive steepings so leaf doesnt cool in between.
first cup was divine. loads of honey blended with some malty chocolate. no astringany at all.
Second cup was less sweet and more malty. Very nice strenght.
This is a tea i will be sure to restock come spring.
Sipdown. Backlog from yesterday.
This tea has been my pregym companion for some time. A good black yunnan that is as close to a “table tea” as it gets. not super quality but comforting. However since there is lots of better yunnan blacks i will not be restocking. Farewell!
