Let me start off by saying that the price of this tea is great considering the flavor. It smells sweet and woodsy, with a hint of malt. The taste is a sweet start with a peppery-woodsy finish. The cocoa notes famous in Yunnan teas seem to appear 50% of the time, but that might have something to do with my water. While it has a good flavor, it is considerably bitter for my taste. At boiling temperature the astringency is even more apparent. I would classify it as semi-bitter, and some people might like this.

My main concern with this tea is that it’s sole strength comes from in the first infusion. The second steeping is very noticeably weaker, and the third steeping tastes like a very lightly-flavored water.

Again, a nice Yunnan for the price, but my heart is set on the Black Dragon Pearls. If I note anything else of importance with this tea, I’ll post an update.

Bio

I started drinking tea in February 2011, so I’d say I’m still pretty new to all this. What with all the flavors and health qualities of tea, I’ve fallen in love with the hobby!

My favorite teas are blacks from China’s Yunnan Province, but as I try more and more oolongs I notice that I’ve got a big taste for Wuyis and Dan Congs.
