89

Dry Leaf: Has a sweet malty aroma.
Wet Leaf: Has a sweet malty aroma and I also detect a very faint hay or wheat type of smell.
Liquor: Is dark in color like a yellowish brown color.
Taste: This tea is smooth and has a sweet flavor with some toasty and malty flavors. Call me crazy but I pick up a very faint fruit component to this tea maybe plum or something like it. I also got a slight dryness feeling in the mouth that was not off putting to me.
Overall Opinion: I give this tea a 89. I think this is a good tea for anyone that enjoys black teas or even newbies that are getting their feet wet into teas. This is a nice likable tea. I also would recommend this tea for mornings maybe as a change from a coffee routine. Also, could be good through out your work day for maybe some energy boost. I also want to add this tea does fine for those who like to add milk and sugar to their teas.
Vessel: SAMA DOYO Gongfu/ Kungfu Teapot. 7grams of leaf for 220ml or approx. 7oz. of water to inner cup of pot.

Bio

IF ANY TEA COMPANY WOULD LIKE TO SEND ME SAMPLES OF THEIR TEA I WOULD BE GLAD TO DO A FULL REVIEW ON STEEPSTER FOR YOU AND ON YOUR COMPANY WEBSITE JUST SEND ME A MESSAGE.

I am a simple guy that enjoys making new tea friends and enjoying different teas and tea culture.
My favorite type of teas are green, oolong, pu-erh.
I do have a special love for black (red) tea and chai since they were the teas that started me on my tea adventure. I wish the whole community well.

My Tea Scores
100 points: Perfect experience. Beyond what you would expect from the aroma, the leaf, the liquor, the taste.
96-99 points: Excellent. A tea that will show true greatness in it’s character with at least 2 infusions.
93-95 points: Superior.Teas that achieve high quality in one dimension, and shows it’s high quality character and their variety in other dimensions.
90-92 points: High quality. Quality leaves, liquor hold to it’s true profile, the teas character can hold it’s flavor for 2 infusions.
85-89 points: Good. Above average tea that is lacking something to make them high quality.
80-84 points: Average. Nothing special
79 and lower points: Low quality. Not worth buying and a tea you would never remember drinking unless it tasted that bad.
