This is one of the most attractive and interesting teas I have enjoyed!! The dry leaves are little tiny rolled pearls with a shiny patina, very beautiful. They don’t have as strong as a scent because they are so tightly rolled as to preserve them. The skill to do this must be high.
The leaves unfurl to be tobacco brown curly smoky cuties.
The liquor is dark brown, chocolate-looking smoky and tobacco scented.
The flavor is very thick, rich with a slight touch of sweet but not too sweet. It has a mineral flavor too. No bitterness or astringency. Good
Thank you Tea Trekker for this lovely sample!!! Loved it!!

Drank the rest of this sample today and I wish I had more. It has some smoky elements that taste like Lapsang Souchong but not overpowering, just subtle and then mixed notes of a sweeter black tea. Such a beautiful dry tea and then interesting flavors to drink!!!
