a nice and tasty tea! :D i taste earth and sweetness. although it smelled a little shrimpy, it did not taste like shrimp :) even if it did i don’t mind at all. the only issue which keeps this tea from scoring a perfect 100% is the fact that i had to break it up a little to get a nice dark color after the rinse because even in hot water it did not steep well. (some might not care but i do)

many thanks to Scott Wilson and Yunnan sourcing for this lovely tea :)

so i tried this earlier but i guess its somewhat true that eating food can mask the taste. then i got bad heart burn which at first i thought was the ginseng but then i remembered i had these little energy drinks with ginseng and nothing bad ever happened. so i know it was the Mr. noodles i had for lunch that did it. so later in the evening i have tried this tea and the tea is very sweet and tasty with hints of white chocolate. i would like to thank Scott Wilson and Yunnan sourcing for this nice tea :)
