Another tea out of the Travelling Teabox – I imagin I’ll be trying many of those as I try to decide which teas from the box I want to keep and which ones to send on. :)

It smells like a typical Yunnan – that sort of slightly smokey, slightly tannic scent. People have likened it to tobacco (not cigarettes), though since I avoid tobacco on principle I really don’t have a good idea what it smells like.

It’s not as ‘dense’ a tea as other Yunnans I’ve tried have been, instead it’s quite smooth and surprsingly light. It has a surprisingly sweet note in the middle of each sip before it trails off into a more tannic sort of aftertaste. It’s a little bit drying on the mouth I find, but not too bad. I may or may not keep this one.

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.
