Thank you Vicony Teas for this free sample!

I decided to try this tea while listening to D. Scarlatti sonatas. Tea always makes listening to music more enjoyable for me.

Leaf Quality:
There were no stems, only long, dark leaves. They smelled of sweet fruit. Like the other Wuyi Yancha teas I’ve tried, the leaves themselves remind me of little charcoals. The brewed leaves smelled of cherries and wine, and were a bit toasty.

Brewed Tea:
20 second steep times for this tea.
The brewed tea was a light brown, and smelled very buttery with a hint of toastiness. My first sip was smokey, buttery, and sweet. Very nice.
Second Steeping
This cup was very floral, and much sweeter than the first. Some smokiness showed through, however it was not as noticeable as the first.
Third Steeping
This was nice, silky, buttery, and floral. The characteristic smokey flavor from the other brews was still present.

I really liked this tea, and am happy to have tried it- especially with great music.

I love drinking and reviewing tea. Green, Oolong, Black, White, Yellow, Dark, Pu-erh… It’s all great. In particular, my favorites are Taiping Hou Kui, and Aged Teas.

I’m currently in California, and started my interest in tea at a very young age. Ever since, I’ve looked for exotic, rare, and even newly-developed teas to try.

It doesn’t end there: I’ll try just about any tea new to me that crosses my path.

I typically brew tea in a traditional manner (different teas require different steeping times and water temperatures, ect…). Whichever directions are on the packaging or website, I tend to follow as well.

I’m also building a private collection of Pu-Erh teas and teas good for Aging. Hopefully, they’ll turn out nice.

Companies: If you are looking for a reviewer for tea, I would be happy to sample any of the teas you offer.

Message me for Sample swapping.
