429 Tasting Notes
This is a nice Keemun with a peppery taste. This is a very smooth tea with a slight sweetness to it. It has a very slight smoky aftertaste. A nice cup of tea in the morning.
This tea is very smooth and mellow. It brews up an amber color which is unusual for a green. I’m not really into green teas very much but I do like this one. Taste is slightly peppery and floral.

I know this tea is in a bag but it tastes nutty and toasty. Smells nutty too.
This tea smells like chocolate. When steeped I got a dark amber color that smelled a little nutty with chocolate notes in it. This tea reminds me of a dark creamy Oolong.
This is a brisk robust tea. I can’t find any bitterness and only a slight astringency. It has a nice kick to it like a strong coffee. This blend has excellent teas in it, you can taste it. It makes a very nice breakfast blend.
This is a sad morning, my pouch of Mountain Malt is empty. This is my last cup until I order more. All I can say is that my next order will be substantially more than 1 ounce. So, good by friend until we meet again.
Very nice tea with a nutty smell and a light grassy taste.
All I can say is that I just love this yunnan tea. Caramel and peppery while being robust and smooth and no bitterness. Hard to ask for much more.
Great pick me up in the morning, this tea is robust, brisk, and malty. It also makes a great ice tea.
I’m actually getting writers block doing tasting notes. I have really exhausted the superlatives for this great tea. Its just a great yunnan tea.
A very nice green yunnan tea. It has a nutty aroma with a hint of flowers.
For me a very average breakfast tea, much better than tea bags. It may be my tastes as I have never drank a Ceylon that I loved, the same for Darjeelings. I seem to like yunnan and assam teas. I really see the reason that there are so many types of tea out there. This tea is strong, it gets bitter if you steep more than 3 minutes. It has a little astringency, but it is a drinkable tea.
Brisk, robust, malty, and chewy, this tea is just something that has to be experienced to be believed.
Very nice robust, brisk, breakfast tea.
This is a light oolong with honey notes. Very nice and tasty in the afternoon or evening. The tea has a sweetness to it and the aroma is very different than most teas I have had. A very interesting cup.
The tin on this teas states that one should steep for 3 minutes…I did 4. My first sip was caramel notes. For me the tea was much smoother, malty and no bitterness or astringency. I also get the peppery finish I’ve come to expect from Yunnan teas. Four minutes is my new steeping time for this tea. It was so much more enjoyable for me that I need to up the ratings a few points. I’m still getting caramel notes as the tea cools. This one is on its way to becoming my favorite yunnan. Rishi step aside. I just love yunnan teas.
