WELL NOW, this smells quite promising in the bag. Very sweet and fresh, like chocolatey fig cookies. Taste is smooth and firmly what I expect out of a Yunnan tea. I get the notes reminiscent of cocoa a little, but this particular one mostly tastes sweet and dry-fruit-like (fig?). A little mineral tasting too. As with most Yunnan teas, I like a little sugar in here. I find this has just a slight tartness in the aftertaste. Overall a great tea.

Bio

I’ve been drinking tea since I was a youngin’, as a way of relaxing before bed. I ventured out from bagged, mass produced tea when I tried some loose leaf Earl Grey at the old man’s house years back. I’m still not too proud for the occasional bagged stuff, saving my snobbery for hard to find craft beer.

I gravitate towards Chinese black-tea varieties, Japanese greens, unflavored oolongs from wherever, and the occasional “I cant sleep” type of herbal teas. I signed up so I can keep track of the teas I’ve tried, and what I want to keep in my cupboard on the regular.
