I bought this tea as part of an attempt to find a tea similar to a really amazing sample I had of a tea of this type. While this one is not the caramel chocolate tea I am looking for it definitely has it’s own charms and merits.
This tea is more robust than the other Zhengshan Xiaozhongs I have . It is not smokey, but it has stronger roasted notes than my others. it is sweet with hints of caramel, spice and honey, tempered by the bitter notes of molasses. it also Has notes of roasted sweet potato and grain, as well as plum and citrus lychee notes. In later steeps the molasses tempers into caramel over darkened bread crusts.
While it is not exactly the tea I am a searching for it is a nice easily drinkable tea which offers good value.
This one isn’t bad at all to me, In fact I like it quite a bit, It’s nice and dark and roasty and delicious, It’s Da Hong Pao what else can I say they all seem to taste a little different in ways but still slightly the same in ways.
I order it once just a little 99cent sample size package of it and I ended up ordering more then I just went ahead and got me 250g cuz it is good to me and it all came in little samples packages for taking with me on the go sometimes(fox full of those little guys)
I’m at the hospital waiting room while my mom has her brain surgery and as usual no good tea in the hospitals so I bring some of this, I did have to use a styrofoam cup but I got two cups and a plastic lid and kinda made my own styrofoam gaiwan by simple using the lid to strain over into the other cup, it worked very well :) Anyways tastey you should try it :)
