ESGREEN delivers again!

This slightly broken, generic looking Dian Hong is very smooth and sweet with subtle blooming notes and distinctive peppery coating over the tongue.

I enjoyed three steeps (3 gr, 250 ml 95C, 3m-4m-5m) and all I can say that this is by far the most cost-effective Dian Hong I stumbled upon. It’s very smooth and gentle, lacking any harsh body notes that can be sometimes found with this tea. In first steep you get medium-full body with nice potato sweetness and blooming undertones of gardenia and trademark of Yunannese black tea – peppery coating on the tongue. In following steeps this tea develops lighter but still smooth and even sweeter body. It reminds me of ESGREEN’s broken grade Keemun, humble looking but very rich and appeasing.

Will backlog later with gaiwan.

I agree. This is pretty awesome stuff. My favorite from Esgreen so far – except maybe the bamboo dark tea, that was pretty neat too.

Although I’m a big Yunnan black tea fan I have to give an extra credit to ESGREEN’s Keemun. I’ll be getting both soon, though.
Liu An was an interesting experience, but I fear that I might find out that I don’t really like it if I get it, making me stuck with a pound of tea.
