From Imperial Tea Court

As a native of Hong Kong, Roy calls this uncommon black tea from Guangdong Province a taste of home. The handsome furry leaf tips, oxidized to a beautiful shade of gold, have a heady aroma that mixes exotic tropical scents of sugar cane and bamboo. We call this tea Jin Hao Li Cha (golden fur gift tea) because not only is it delicious enough to please the most discriminating black tea lover, but it also makes a stunning visual impression. In the cup it yields a rich amber liquor. Familiar yet intriguing, flavorful but not overpowering, this tea is the equivalent of comfort food in a cup.

MUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCH better. Bumping up 20 points.

6g per 100ml, 97C water, quick initial rinse, and infusions progressing 15, 15, 25, 35, 45, 60 seconds.

Nice crispness with apple and acacia wood notes and a gentle floral recession. Some light hints of natural cocoa powder, walnut shell, terra cotta, orchid bark, orange peel, and allspice. Body is much better, though still lighter than a Yunnan red.

At a high concentration and short steeps, this is a very nice tea well worth the price. Good thing I gave it a 12th chance to give me good results…
