Fairly mild for a breakfast blend. If I didn’t know it was a Yunnan, I would have guessed this was primarily a Sri Lankan tea. The aroma is salty and vegetal. The taste is a mild bread and butter taste like a buttered dinner roll. A gentle, neutral sweetness. Moderate astringency. Medium amber colored liquor.

Bread and butter? Weird. I’m not a black tea person, but that makes me wanna try this…

Well, that’s what I get out of it. Ask 10 people and get 11 different descriptions, but it really does remind me of a buttered dinner roll. It is not a strong buttery taste like some oolongs, but it is there. It has a smooth mouth feel and neutral sweetness that also contribute to the buttery feel for me. That said, it is still a black tea with noticeable astringency, so depending on what you don’t like about black teas, this may not change your mind.
