17 Tasting Notes
Got this in a sample box …it was a lighter yunnan black …very rounded and smooth taste ,had that distinct yunnan hay/oat background tho which was nice. Either the cone I had was dusty or something else because after drinking this I had a bad hay fever like allergy atttack.
Flavors: Hay, Honey
It has the honeyed barley taste I’ve come to think of when I hear Da Hong Pao .For the price this tea makes me very happy , $6.99 for 50g and free shipping so its a good deal. You do wait awhile for shipping though.
Flavors: Honey, Roasted Barley
Very dark tea in color, taste is classic Yunnan but with some strong hints of Shu like notes….and the aftertaste is kind of like the aftertaste of a good cigar …its an odd little bagged tea but a good one!
Flavors: Malt, Oak wood, Tobacco
Not bad for a bagged tea…just something I got on a whim after seeing it in a store, smells good , medium level of bergamot , mild flavor , smooth black tea in the background with hardly no bitter notes . Good for when you feel like making something fast and easy and nothing involved.
