I was hoping to taste more mace or spice in this tea but as pleasant as it is, it is not much of anything in particular. The leaves are large and clearly plucked, processed, and packed with care. I recommend trying it to satisfy one’s curiosity about the Burmese x Taiwan varietals but with managed expectations. This is a good tea- mild, friendly, inviting, but not an exceptional one. Steeping for about 4 minutes seems ideal to get all of the potential into the cup.

This tea is exceptionally fruity and sweet, and these flavors are not very subtle but are rather immediately apparent. The leaves are also quite large, beautiful, and twisted. The finish is pleasingly astringent. I hope this tea is available for a long time!

This has become one of my favorite morning tea. The dry leaves are long thin wires and have a wonderful chocolote aroma. This tea stands up to long steeping times very well; I use about 3 grams of leaf to 10 oz of water for three minutes on the first steeping, four minutes for the second. This makes a very bold, malty flavor, but with very little astringency and almost no bitterness. Highly reccomended to anyone who likes black tea, but dislikes overly bitter tea.
