This reminds me of Black Needles from DAVIDsTEA, but this is a bit “spicier”, more earthy and slightly less sweet. When it comes to black tea buds you really can’t go wrong. Yunnan Da Ye Hong is another easy to enjoy tea that can be drunk multiple times a week without getting boring or sickening. Also I think it’s a shame not to resteep teas like this, the second and third steeps are very tasty.
Yunnan Da Ye Hong
The presence of golden buds indicates a fine aromatic tea. The crystal clear liquor is soft and sweet, and earthy, floral and vegetal (buckwheat) aspects are clear. Woody persistence (resinous) and rusticity (leather) develops into a smooth and milky finish.
