Yum ! This is really good. I don’t know why this sample has been sitting in my drawer for so long. Maybe just simply because I mostly drink teas/tisanes without caffeine. In any case, I’m working from home today (because I couldn’t get down the mountain this morning to work) and I needed a pick-me-up. I dug around in my tea drawer and voila, Hong Jing Luo.

I don’t think I brewed this strong enough, but it tastes great anyway. It’s earthy, not astringent, and has an interesting floral note in the background. I could also smell this floral (almost like jasmine) before brewing. I’m not quite getting the cocoa notes or raisin notes, but that is probably because its a little too weak. The leaves of this tea are gorgeous too!
