I am hesitant to try Chinese blacks anymore, except yunnan. Others usually taste like veggies that have been steamed in a dry pot. yuck! But the description of this one made it sound much different: fruit, cherry, caramel. . I almost detected the fruit at first, but then I lost the detection. This tea, to me, has that smokey undertone that I can’t appreciate, like a keemun. These type of teas literally taste all identical to me. I can’t get past the smoky to notice other flavors. I am leaving this tea unrated since I cannot be a fair judge here.
