This company has recently sparked my interest, for I had never noticed them until just recently. I enjoy their product appearance, and I knew I had to give them a go. I acquired some of this tea, so I decided to brew it up. The leaf consists of small delicate ebony curls that give off a sweet musky cherry scent. I was also picking up some dark chocolate tones. I placed them inside the warmed teapot and gave them a shake. The scent became a sweet butter or molasses scent. I was still picking up the chocolate tone, only it became much more smooth. I washed the leaves once and prepared for brewing. The steeped leaves transform towards more sharper tones of malt, dark wood, and burnt sugar. The flavor began as pure buttery molasses. The taste was sweet, smooth, and lasting. The second steep brought more maltier and wood flavors. The next steeping session slowly pushed the tea into a rough and robust direction. I really enjoyed this tea, but I believe it should be brewed western instead of gongfu. I know that I should explore more from this company, and I am happy to have tried this.
