drank Wuyishan Black by Steepster
2168 tasting notes

This tea came in the Steepster select box for December. Definitely has flavors that are reminiscent of a wuyi oolong which is understandable given the origin of the leaf. Very earthy with a hint of smoke, slightly winey and fruity. It’s a bit on the light side for a black tea and doesn’t need any additions. I detect a floral aroma in the tea liquor.

Overall enjoyable but not something I would stock on a permanent basis.

Preparation

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.
