Though we’re closer to the next Christmas season than the one this tea was sold in I just recieved a sample from Pureleaf a bit ago and here’s what I found. The color is a deep red/brown.It’s flavor woody,specifically oak to me.As for it being a black it seems pretty mild and smooth.I could easily wake to this cup.It’s afterflavor is an exact duplicate of the drink,just toned down a bit.The wet leaf smell is leathery.Now that I said that I guess I detect that same characteristic in the flavor,just not on the surface.Overall not bad,but not one to brag on either.

Dave here.
I’m trying to get back into the swing of things as far as writing reviews. my tastes have changed greatly from when I was last on here, Now I typically drink sheng puerhs daily, though I’m really looking forward to getting enough good blacks to equally divide my time between the two. I occasionally drink white, yellow, & greens but still stay away from blends & non-camellia sinensis. I’m no authority & always welcome suggestions.

I’m a wimp when it comes to astringency so take anything I say about this characteristic with a grain of salt(ASTRINGENCY WEENIE MAN, or AWM for short).

Other ramblings;
About tunes; I, like many, love them. I like adding them to my notes, but I feel like if someone were, let’s say knitting or painting or reading a book, that it would help the readers to get a better feel for how the writer may be impressioned about his environment toward his tea experience.

I wish I would have paid more attention to the grammer teachers so many years ago and not doodling band insignias. I should revisit the proper use of commas for starters, which I love.
I also love, and probably over use, parenthesis (the use of them may be a second personality coming to surface).
