It doesn’t smell like tea. It smells like a candy shop >_< TOO sweet. This is even worse that Vanille des lles – it’s disturbingly sweet and lacks any tea flavor at all… I doubt I will ever touch this again…

There really is a world of difference between naturally sweet honey-nectarish Huang Zhi Xiang dancong and this… abomination

Preparation
Boiling 2 min, 0 sec
Ysaurella

surprising, generally people find this tea strong as it’s a robust assam. This assam tea base is detectable immediately even if for sure it’s a caramel & chocolate tea.

I can’t feel anything behind the absurd amount of flavoring :(

Ysaurella

let it steep for more than 2 minutes and a half and for sure you’ll feel it (on the bad sense !)

I was steeping it for any amount of time between 15 seconds and 5 minutes. The result was more or less the same…

Ysaurella

really, you didn’t get an absolutely awful bitterness after 2 minutes ? I cannot even drink it after 2 minutes steeping :S it becomes sooooo bitter I had to throw it

2 minutes was the final attempt I stopped trying. I always try from 10 secs and work up or down from that. This tea was not acceptable on all of the intervals I tried
