With more teas under my belt, I have returned to this one. It now reminds me of the aged TGY that Canton do but with a less overpowering cocoa flavour. The taste is complex with the cocoa flavour at the top but some muscatel and raisins underneath. There is a lot going on in this tea and I am pleased to find that I still enjoy it as much as before but that my experience is richer for having tasted a lot of other teas between my first tasting of it and now.

I am a qualified peripatetic berserkerologist peddling berserkjaknowledge at the University of Nottingham.

My favourite teas are Darjeelings, sheng puerhs and Anji Bai Cha. I return to these every time, after whatever flirtation with other teas I have been involved with.

I no longer rate the teas I drink because keeping ratings consistent proved to be rather hard work while not really giving me anything in return.
