Aroma: Gamey notes of leather, with touches of charcoal, dried wood, tobacco and a faint sweet honey scent.

Tasting Notes: I have an on-off relationship with wuyi tea. Sometimes I find the flavours comforting and fulfilling, other times I find them opposite. I guess it depends on the tea. This particular Da Hong Pao is slowly baked over charcoal, something that seems to be retained in the aroma. However, there are hardly any empyreumatic flavours in this tea. Instead I find a gentle roasted flavour with deep cacao notes, light stone fruit and leather.

Flavors: Honey, Leather, Stonefruit, Tobacco, Wood

Tea in cupboard is all tea I’ve tried, not updated to what I actually have right now!

Love: Nearly all oolong, malty black tea, earl grey, most chai, mint leaves, jasmine pearls.
Meh: Green tea, puerh, matcha.
