I brewed a heaping teaspoon in a mug infuser of this tea. It comes off to me as a typical and decent Yunnan Black tea, not bitter but a bit of a peppery taste to it that in my experience is unique to Yunnan black tea.

2013 Classics 58 Big Tree Black Tea (经典58大树红茶)
This is a 2013 first flush premium black tea made with big tree materials that are usually full of nutritions and free of any chemicals! In addition, it tastes better.
Yunnan is a region in China known for growing large-leaf tea of producing top quality black tea. High mountains covered by mist, with clean water supply from nearby rivulets, rich humus soil …these ideal conditions contribute a lot to the unique flavor of Yunnan black tea, earning it a worldwide reputation.
If you like traditional black teas, you will love this. Much more sophiticated than the mass marketed black teas and less bitter. Our large-leaf Yunnan premium black tea has perfect leaf appearance and a great taste. You won’t be disappointed!
Yunnan premium black tea is made by famous Fengqing Tea Factory according to its Classics 58 recipe, it is a very pure and tasty tea that is full-bodied and rich with a hint of natural sweet malty flavor, a brew that no other black teas come close.

I was lucky to receive some of this tea as a sample and enjoyed it so much I had to buy some! The tea broth is lovely and thick with a tasty malt overtone and low astringency in early infusions that is almost sweet. There is an aroma and flavor of cocoa, though not nearly as strong as in the Yi Mei Ren. There is also an aroma and flavor that reminds me of cassia, but it was faint in the first steeping. The cassia aroma and flavor intensifies with later, longer infusions, but doesn’t become at all overpowering. The malty taste recedes some after the 3rd or 4th infusion. This tea doesn’t lose flavor after several steepings and the tea broth continues to be a dark, clear red-brown. Later infusions become slightly astringent due to the length of infusion needed, but not unpleasantly so.
The caffeine content of this tea is moderate enough that I can actually enjoy many infusions and not get the headache caused by too much caffeine that I get with most other teas, which makes it a great every day tea. I hope Puerh Shop continues to carry this tea, because I really enjoy it!
