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

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.

Flavors: Bergamot

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 0 sec 16 OZ / 473 ML

First Steep – This Tea is heavy in Assam , though, with most blends with assam’s the bold one . Ceylon in the background more with a winey note that I can assume is the Sikkim..its a good Breakfast Style tea .

Flavors: Malt

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 4 min, 30 sec 1 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

Second Steep – More Winey notes this time , much less Assam , less Ceylon too ..tastes more like a Darjeeling now
