A delicious oolong that is best served gong fu style. subtle flavors hint at apricot. kind of like Magic Hat #9 but good. This is a classic tea.

after watching the leaves dance in my cup, I took my first sip to discover a slightly vegetal taste at first, followed by a buttery flavor. as I await the second Infusion, the aroma of the tea lingers in the air.

Astringent, but polite…the leaves dance vertically in the cup, whirling rods of “yellow” energy. A tribute to the inner emporer, feeds the inner majesty…

This remarkable harvest does something unexplainable when you drink it. First flush is always something to look forward to.

It’s a classic Dobra drink , one of the most ordered for sure. it can be really good and sweet in the summer. it’s a fun drink but not the best thing if you’re looking for tea.

Excellent wild Pu-erh. sort of tastes like bamboo or if you’ve ever chewed on a chopstick. light but still earthy, i’ve gotten as many as 13 good infusions out of it before it lost it’s flavor.

Wild? I’ve never heard tea described as wild before.

Yeah I guess it isn’t from a tea garden, people just pick it from wherever. it’s really good though. almost impossible to over steep it too.

Not top choice for drinking by itself. it does however blend with just about everything, which is its purpose. makes for excellent chai.

This 2011 harvest of Da Hong Pao is fantastic. A rich, roasty brew reminiscent of fall evenings and campfire cooking.

The infusion looks like a medium amber syrup. like the color suggests, it is slightly sweet in a lightly honeyed cereal kind of way. the roast is a balanced of smokiness and sauteed butter. my tongue keeps playing the series of tastes of in my mouth even after several minutes of not having had any tea. this is the sign of a good tea.

While I generally reserve this tea for colder days (like today) a roasted tea during warmer days can feel wonderful and help with temperature regulation.

My favorite tea so far. the perfect balance of smokey and sweet. nice and dark but not too dark.
