This tea smells wonderful, malty like an assam but sweet and peppery as well. Taste wise it’s good but not fantastic, especially for how much it costs. It has a syrupy brothiness, almost like unsweet caramel. The pepper is there but not as strong as other Yunnans I’ve had. I’m going to try a couple of resteeps to see what happens. Its still a great morning tea but still out of my budget except in samples.
