Disclaimer: I am a huge fan of Golden Monkey. This is a fine example. Nice dark brew. Lots of tanins and bitterness (but not in a bad way). I always try to describe smells and flavors in tea but to be honest, unlike wine, I rarely am able to find something descriptive enough. It just tastes like tea.
China Imperial Golden Monkey - ZP86
A rich and flavorful Fujian tea with well-twisted, attractive leaves. The hearty cup has a rich aroma with cocoa notes. Hints of chocolate and dried fruit follow in the finish. This tea will take a bit of milk, but can readily be enjoyed plain.
