A day for penultimate cups. Pretty much everything has one cup left after the one I am drinking, including this one. I still have to try this one back to back with my Tan Yang that I brought back from Beijing, so I guess I will be doing that next time I have it! This is nice; sweet, malty, honeyed, grainy. This time I used a bit more tea in my cup and I was afraid it might come out too strong, but it was quite delicious. Certainly a high quality tan yang.
