From Chan Teas

This black tea has big leaves. They unravel into fat brown tea leaves that hail from China’s Hunan province just north of Guangdong.

The twisted dry leaves have a robust aroma. In a warmed gaiwan, the leaves emit a hearty scent slightly reminiscent of cherries. After brewing, the wet leaves present the cherry aroma once again.

The liquor turns from dark red-brown to golden yellow throughout the session, where it starts off strong, yet not overpowering. In the end, the tea leaves a thick, syrupy sweetness in the back of the throat.

I knew I was in for a gamble going for a black tea, since I’m “not into black tea,” but I liked what I heard in the description/video and the gamble really paid off! Maybe I have to re-think my position on black teas, since I’ve found a few that I’ve really enjoyed. I guess it just took a long time to get the astringent taste of the common irish / english breakfast teas out of my mouth.

This tea has a really nice lightness to it compared to most of my experiences with black teas. I was a bit light on the leaf in my first attempt as a precaution before going all in, so I can’t wait to give it another go with a full leaf portion. I definitely got the cherry hints mentioned in the description. It holds up great over many infusions (I think I’m on 5 or 6 right now, and I’m too tea-full to go on). I brewed with a gaiwan and followed the brewing instructions on http://chanteas.com/hunan

Great tea, and also pretty economical. I can definitely see drinking this regularly.
