Thank you Angel for the generous samples. Now to this lovely tea. When I opened the tiny sample bag and smelled the aroma of soft cocoa I knew that I would be in for a treat. So rich and full of flavor. I am getting flavors similar to the Zhi Gung Fu. I saw this was noted by another reviewer also. I only used half of the sample bag for the first cup. For cup 2 I am using the rest of the bag. I will give it a shorter steep time and see what happens. This such a fine tea. One sip and you are in tea heaven. I am brewing this basket style and quite frankly I am saving some for later. It is very uplifting and one of the finest black teas I have had the pleasure to sip. Now I see what my fellow Steepsterites have been gushing about. Again, thank you Angel….

The smell of empty cup is nothing short of sublime. Maybe the finest of the “Empty Cup Aroma”

I know what you are talking about. I have had a few of those experiences as well. Usually with Lapsang or Pu-Erh.

I shall pay more attention to it. It is easy with something like Hot & Spicy Cinnamon or even a puerh, but I haven’t considered consistantly paying attention to this element of enjoying tea.
