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.
6g / 220ml zhuni yixing.
1m @ 80C
2m @ 90C
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.
