A nice smooth example of Yunnan without bitterness. I got a sample size in a recent order and brewed it a bit strong this morning. The second steeping is a bit weaker, but still has a nice dark chocolate aftertaste. Not a bad cup, but not my favorite Yunnan either. Don’t think I need this in my cupboard, but would be interested in blending it with a bit of Assam.

Flavors: Dark Chocolate, Nutty

I started drinking more tea about 10 years ago when I found that even my half -caf coffee was making me jittery and then sleepy after the caffeine wore off. While I started out with mostly Teavana, but soon expanded my tea cupboard to include lapsang souchon, pu-erh, Assam, and other strong black teas. I do enjoy oolongs, green, and other teas, as well as a nice tisane for an evening cuppa.
I’m not fond of jasmine or bergamont teas, though I’ll try anything once.
I am an avid traveler, hiker, soccer player/watcher.
I love trying new tea in new places, if you see something in my cupboard you want to try, hit me up for a swap!
