A very nice yunnan, mild and with only a hint of smokiness. The leaves are dark, with a few golden tips. The smell is straight up hay, which had me worried – Yunnans have been tough for me so far, as I don’t like the grassy note they sometimes have. This one brewed up nice and dark in 5 minutes. The taste is sweet and slightly of cocoa, with a tiny bit of smoke. No hay or grass detected, thank goodness! This is a solid tea, but not my favorite – I’d like a little more depth to the flavor. Still, a nice afternoon cup!

Bio

I’m pretty new to the world of tea! I took up tea drinking to help control my coffee consumption, but it seems that I have just created another sort of monster!

I like strong flavors and bold teas. My favorites types include Scottish Breakfast, Earl Grey, and roasted mate. I have recently discovered a love for dessert teas, and my obsession with mint is ongoing.

I am a professional singer, and I’ve had a habit of drinking peppermint and throat coat teas leading up to any performance. I have too many cats and too many hobbies. I blog about sewing and knitting my own clothes (and, most recently, about tea!)
