drank Yu Lu Yan Cha Black by Verdant Tea
1382 tasting notes

I received a sample of this from Terri (thanks). She wasn’t crazy about it. When I opened the bag and sniffed all I could think was WOW! Smells so chocolaty. Steeped the aroma is roasted and grain. Sipping I get honey and roasted grain. Underneath and very late in the sip I occasionally picked up floral notes that my senses detected as rose. I don’t recall anyone else getting rose. It only hints at chocolate, malt, and sweet potato. It is thick and silky feeling. I quite liked it.
