I believe the last time I had enjoyed a Yunnan tea was from Adagio. The leaves were a mixture of beautifully light and deep browns, curled and soft, with tiny hairs. I recall golden tips and a smooth and soft flavor.
This tea is rather interesting. There is clearly a musty scent, which makes me worry about the quality of this tea.
There is a mixture of dark brown leaves and stems, which is not odd. What is odd is the size of the stems, most larger and longer than the leaves. I worry some more.
The liquor is dark and cloudy, with that musty scent from the leaves. I am actually not really looking forward to tasting this tea.
And, just as I had suspected, this is a very bitter tea. The musty scent had very much shown what the quality was to this tea, which is bitter and pretty much flavourless.
