3 Tasting Notes

While I liked this tea it struck me as a bit one note. Less complex and less layered in flavor than say a Keemun or Assam. Still it was fun to try a wild grown tea.

Smooth, round and delicious without being heavy. Reminiscent of Yunnan tea but a bit less earthy. The folks at McNultys recommended it when I stopped by looking for a black tea that was special and not as well known. It did not disappoint.

My new breakfast tea. Easy drinking. Not astringent or grassy. Unlike most teas – which I only like piping hot – this is delicious as it cools. Refreshing.

Been drinking tea every day since I was nine years old. I go through phases. For years I only drank second flush Darjeeling – an exquisite tea and I found none better. Then inexplicably it was Keemun – imperial Keemun if I could find it – for years. Now I enjoy a broad range of teas. Pinhead gunpowder for breakfast, Russian caravan for lunch, etc.
