Received this tea for Christmas (15’) and it has been my everyday morning cup at work. This brews how you brew it… meaning: You can use 185 to 205 on this tea and brew it between 30 to 90 seconds and find different levels of malt and ‘tea cocoa’ to this. I think any good dianhong can have the same said about it. I will say that I prefer the straight strands opposed to the curly leaf, but that is a personal preference. Dianhong at work for breakfast is a automatic win; if you haven’t tried it, I highly suggest it.
