Very smokey (pleasantly so).

I drank this with a spicy and creamy dish. The smokey flavor stood up well.

This took more than a few steepings to open up and darken in color. A few of the darker steepings were fairly sweet but the sweetness faded quickly.

The dry tea smells somewhat creamy like white chocolate. It’s fairly mild when brewed. Very palatable

This tea is sweet and the flavor reminds me of honey graham crackers. I rarely add chrysanthemum to this because I think it’s sweet enough already.

Very sweet and satisfying. This tea is not very pungent and might be a good introduction to puerh.

This was a very temperamental tea for me. Oversteeping or steeping at too high a temperature ruins the flavor.

The flavor reminds me of dark chocolate. It doesn’t actually taste like chocolate like some black teas do, but it reminds me of the mouth feel and bite of dark chocolate.

I steeped 9 grams of this tea in a 4 oz. gaiwan. The tea was stronger and more flavorful than when I tried steeping 4 grams, but it’s still too astringent for me and I still don’t like the flavor much. This one isn’t my cup of tea.

This tea has a very complex flavor. It’s smokey, sweet, and slightly fruit/prune-like. The raw tea smells very smokey and the liquor smells like campfire and cake.
