From Yunnan Sourcing

Spring 2011 material was processed by wilting and roasting into this tightly rolled “bi luo chun” style black tea. A 2 leaf to 1 bud grade black tea with nice roasted flavors resembling a Wu Yi Rock oolong in some regards. Sweet and smooth. An enjoyable but inexpensive black tea for everyday drinking or re-sale!

I need to be a bit more careful when I brew this tea. Usually when I short steep a black tea, I try and estimate 2 tsp of leaves into a gaiwan or small teapot. But this black tea is very compact, and 1 tsp of leaves totally fills up my purion teapot.

Moving onto the tasting notes;
Nothing really stood out too much flavourwise. It’s very malty, earthy, Yunnan-y(?). The tea liquor comes out pretty dark for a short steep, but it’s not too dark or heavy for me to enjoy in the summer.
Initially it seems pretty standard, but I don’t mind that at all.

100ml purion teapot, 1 tsp, 6 short steeps

(Going to hold off rating this until I try it a few more times)
