A word about the tea
Daoli Black Trip is a top-quality fully oxidized black tea from the Yunnan province of China. Daoli dianhong’s leaves are tightly curled into small spirals. This shape allows for excellent taste and fragrance conservation. It also preserves the integrity of the original bud, so when you steep Daoli Black Trip, you will see unscathed and fully opened leaves. This tea has a very mellow taste with a hint of dry fruit. It goes very well with chocolate, cookies, and many other things.

Why we like it
We decided to add Black Trip to the Daoli selection because of this tea’s great taste and the unique shape of its well preserved leaves. It is grown in the Yun county of Yunnan province, which is famous for its long tradition of making supreme quality black teas.

First, a few disclaimers: yesterday I got I packet of samples from Daoli. Since samples can’t lie around for long, most of my following notes will be about their teas. Secondly – you shold take this particular note with a pinch of salt, since I am not really into black teas at the moment, so I have few “references”.

This was my first morning cup today. I warmed my ware, “washed” 5 grams of leaves with hot water for few seconds, then steeped in 1 dl (3,4 oz) of water. First cup hit me with the aroma I can describe as that of a good stout (beer drinkers will know what I mean). It is slightly smoky at first, which turned into dried apples or pears. I have difficulties pinpointing the taste itself, but it had a full bodied feeling. (At first I was almost disappointed since I anticipated strong tastes associated with beer.:) ) The aftertaste is somehow bitter, but not unpleasant.

I drank my second cup with a piece of chocolate. A party in my mouth! Sweethes of chocolate helped to pronounce the dried fruit aromas of tea. Lovely!

That’s it for now. I’m off to make some more. Overall, this is a really good tea. Again, keep in mind that I am not a black tea drinker so my note might be of little help to experienced drinkers.
