This is easily my favorite of the Hei Cha samples I bought from YS. Unlike the others, this was not muddy or earthy at all, but honey-sweet, slightly minty, with creamy vanilla and birch bark flavors.

It’s also a powerhouse of a tea and will last all day if you keep the steeps short. Overall, this is a really nice, friendly tea that fits somewhere between a ripe and a raw pu erh.

I love tea and living in a place that is cold or cool nine months of the year, tea is a constant source of warmth and education. I always drink tea straight and rarely drink flavored teas or Tisanes, except for the occasional Rooibos. I’m a proud father of two young boys, an avid skier, motorcyclist, reader, and runner. I have a doctorate in English (dissertation on Emily Dickinson.)
