In a world where men are men, woman are men and little girls are FBI agents its nice to have something to count on. While this is not the best Yunnan there is, it will always be in my cupboard because its reliable. From time to time your car won’t start, your lights won’t work and your mom will call down evil upon you. But this tea will always be there ready to step in when life lets you down. If only one of Job’s three friends would have offered him a cup of Yunnan Red.

A relatively forgiving cup of tea, and by relatively I mean providing your not a complete moron and had to Google Yunnan to know what it is, then you should have no problem creating a cup that will sooth the nerves of a balloon in a knitting shop.

This Yunnan is a fairly bold tea, with a mildly astringent middle and a silky buttery after taste. Which when run over your palette creates a very smooth tea. Slightly sweet to compliment the earthy nature of Yunnan’s.

You know your loud obnoxious Uncle Jack that doesn’t care what anyone thinks and just does what he wants as to proudly exclaim this is who I am and you can piss off? Well this tea is nothing like him, its more like your Grandpa Stan, he may not be loud, showy and flashy, he is always there for you. And after basking in his quiet strength and spending a little relaxing one on one time with him you feel ready to face the world that called you a pansy and lit your underwear on fire today.

Tasting Notes: 2.5 grams, 4 min, 212F water, 1 infusion (if you trying to infuse it a second time snakes will grow in your belly)

Great review and at almost 64 years of age I totally understand what you mean even though I’m a girl. But I was a shot put coach and can build computers and won a apple pie bake-off if that qualifies me better!
