Made up a cup of this after digging through my cupboard for inspiration. :) It had to be a hot-steeping tea due to me automatically setting the kettle for 95C. This one caught my eye, as I’ve had it for coughcough and it was sitting there unopened.

It’s pretty good. It’s better (more flavourful) than the Yunnans I’ve picked up locally, although it definitely leans towards astringency. I do like it, with the honey baked sweet malty flavours, but I’m unsure I’d pick up more of this one. I think I prefer the Taiwan Assams, because they mix my favourite (Assams!) with the honey baked sweet flavours.

Still, I am enjoying this mug and I’ll happily resteep it and finish up the sample.
