So, starting with the typical stuff, it’s a Yunnan black. It’s malty, chocolatey, and sweet potatoey.
Comparing it to the other Chinese blacks I’ve had lately, it’s a little brighter in flavor. As soon as I take a sip, there’s a sharp tang of tannins that hits at the front of the tongue. Potato notes hit next in the middle of the tongue, and then the mouth is filled with a dark chocolate flavor at the end. There’s some astringency at the back of the palate.
Though this tea is excellent, I think I prefer some of the other Yunnans I’ve been drinking lately.
