This is a decent black tea, though not spectacular to my tasting buds. I didn’t really pick up much of the boldness or peppery taste…it’s like the tea was weak, but not weak like I didn’t steep it long enough. I’ll probably try to steep it a little longer to see if I can eke some more flavor out of it, but I’m worried that too much longer is going to take me straight to “bitter town.” In any event, it’s certainly not bad, and I’ll bump my rating if I can bump the taste.

Perhaps adding a bit more leaf would help? I’ve noticed for myself personally that Yunnans seem to benefit from heftier servings.

I don’t have an abundance of experience with Yunnans, so thanks for the tip. I’ll be sure to keep that in mind!
